21. At the very least, Reid should not run for Majority Leader of the Senate in two years.


I have mixed feelings about him resigning as Majority Leader now.

He made this bed when he didn't fix the filibuster. He should get to lie in it.
I don't see what a new speaker can do to pick up the pieces.

On the other hand, someone else needs to take the reigns and start to salvage the situation.

If anyone thinks the Republicans won't reform the filibuster should they gain control,
I would think it would be easy to con them into buying some choice property on the Moon.
