I just received the following email ... as I'm sure many of you have.
You wouldn't know it by listening to Fox News, but reputed scholars like Norm Ornstein from the American Enterprise Institute agree: the 111th Congress has been one of the most productive ever.
When we look back on these past two years, we'll be proud of landmark achievements like health insurance reform, the Credit CARD Act, and Wall Street reform. We'll celebrate the role we all played in electing a President and a Democratic congressional majority that got it all done. And we'll remember that one man did as much as anyone to overcome Republican obstructionism to make change happen: Harry Reid.
Dr. Dean then continues:
Simply put, Harry Reid understands how to turn good ideas into policies that work for working families. More than that, he's got the guts to stand up to the GOP. And with so much work left to do, I want him leading the Senate in the 112th Congress the same way he led it in the 111th: with integrity, compassion, and--most of all--a fighting spirit.
I cannot imagine a finer, more timely endorsement from someone I, and I know many of you, respect totally.
Thank you for supporting Senator Reid, Dr Dean, thank you so much!!
