Leader

Kevin Drum asks who should be Senate Minority Leader. I hear that Minority Whip Harry Reid (D-NV) more-or-less has it in the bag already.

That should be "Minority Whip Harry Reid D(emocrat)-NV", unless the I drank more wine than I thought last night...

Don't know much about Reid. But if the extra exposure he'd get as Whip could help swing Nevada, that'd be a plus. He'd better have a pretty thick skin, though.

Not too early to be thinking tactical...

So, what was Reid's position on the vile & monstrous energy bill? Dasche supported it and worked hard for it because it increased ethanol subsidies. (Vegetarian pork?). Under Reid, will the Senate Democrats swing 'round to a unified opposition when the bill is re-introduced in 2005-2006?

Posted by: David Carroll | Nov 3, 2004 11:21:36 PM

How about John Kerry?

Seriously... who better to be the voice of the opposition when Iraq blows up in Bush's face?

Posted by: Chris Lehmann | Nov 3, 2004 11:27:04 PM

Of course after the early exit polling yesterday, we all know how "in the bag," can end up.

Posted by: billm | Nov 3, 2004 11:29:02 PM

I hope this turns out to be a "It's Howard Dean" prediction - but judging by us always being wrong on things trending to the right, I'm not so sure. Durbin, Dodd or Kerry would be excellent choices though.

I've heard that the best thing to do when under a thumb is to turn into a tack - I don't see that from Reid, at all - and if he did, it could cost him big in '10, barring a big shift in the mind of Nevadan voters.

Posted by: dstein | Nov 3, 2004 11:31:51 PM

Not Kerry. He had his 15.

Not Reid. He doesn't have the stomach for filibuster after filibuster.

We need the best of the rest; Biden.

It's time for him to take the reins. Everyone does know that this will be the only democratic position with any power in the nation? The person responsible for battling back the Homeland Crusade?

We need smart, strong, and media friendly.

I'm a Nevadan. Though Reid isn't the most popular with the conservatives in this state, he brings in the pork and they know where the money is flowing from.

He's one of the reasons that Yucca Mountain hasn't already started operating here yet aslo and people know they owe that to him.

And he trunced his challenger, Ziser, by a 66%-33% margin.

It is also rumored here that he is the one who convinced Jeffords to change parties in the spring of 2001. He is a good back-room operator who can stay under the radar.

The only Republican who could feasibly challenge him in 2010 and win, IMHO, in both urban Clark and Washoe counties and the rural counties is Rep. Jim Gibbons, who is rumored to be much more interested in the 2006 Governor's race than becoming a Senator.

Posted by: Terry | Nov 3, 2004 11:47:26 PM

Agreed, epoh. Reid certainly won't be able to fight off the SCOTUS nominations while worrying about his seat in a red state.

Let me toss in another name: Charles Schumer. He has an excellent liberal record, and has been a thorn in Bush's side regarding judicial nominations. This will become critically important a year down the road.

Posted by: Alexis Lanz | Nov 3, 2004 11:48:40 PM

Reid? Are the Dems really going to annoint a pro-lifer to head the efforts against Bush's Supreme Court nominations? Will he be able to put the party before his beliefs on this issue?

I dont see it happening.

Posted by: Doug | Nov 3, 2004 11:52:41 PM

I say Durbin, Schumer, Dodd, or Biden. We need someone who's capable of being a real prick and has a safe seat.

Posted by: Gozer | Nov 3, 2004 11:53:34 PM

Did the Democrats learn nothing from this election? The GOP figured out a rather long time ago that congressional leaders need to be a) partisan fire breathers (even better if they can do it with a smile on their face) and b) in safe seats. Reid is neither. This had better not be the case. Give Kennedy the job until Obama is ready.

Posted by: Green Democrat | Nov 4, 2004 12:03:24 AM

Reid seems to have it in the bag, but it's a shame.

Count me in the Dick Durbin camp. It's definitely time for a safe seat leader who's in touch with the base.

Posted by: Petey | Nov 4, 2004 12:32:50 AM

Schumer's a fighter. We need a fighter who's popular at home. How does the caucus decide these things, anyway?

Posted by: LarryB | Nov 4, 2004 12:42:36 AM

Schumer.

The minority leader must be a bulldog, unafraid to take a loud oppositional line against the administration. After all, Bush & co. are going to be in a world of shit this term and does anyone think they're going to accept responsibility for it? Who do you think they're going to blame?

Schumer's in a true blue state. He won by a landslide. He's a firecracker (He beat D'Amato, for pete's sake). And he's the one who was spearheading the judicial filibusters.

Kerry want to be a uniter. We don't need that (rape me again, please?). Clinton is too green. Reid is from a red state. Dodd, maybe, but I don't think he's as media savvy as Schumer.

"How does the caucus decide these things, anyway?"

Secret ballot.

Posted by: Petey | Nov 4, 2004 12:55:36 AM

Joe Biden would be my vote.

Posted by: Adam Herman | Nov 4, 2004 5:07:19 AM

Look, there were two main considerations here for the position. The person had to be either:

1) Up for election in the 2004 election
2) In a deep blue seat.

Deep blue seats have a problem, as they're too easy to paint as obstructionists. Well-known Senators are worse, like Kerry, Clinton, and Ted Kennedy who would be AWFUL choices because they'd be too easy to label. Their national profile is too high. We need someone whose unknown to most voters.

Reid's not a bad choice. He can play hardball for 4 years before having to think about his next term, which puts us past the 2008 election. Those six-year terms are nice. :)

I think there are better choices, but I've heard he's damn effective.

Posted by: Morat | Nov 4, 2004 10:14:13 AM

reid is good. he is a solid wheeler-dealer and he has a backbone. he's apparently already talked to michelman and i don't think he's too concerned about the presidency or maybe even a 2nd term, so he's the guy...and he has it wrapped up.

i don't know what green means about gop fire breathers in the senate. dole? lott? frist? hardly. if santorum becomes leader, then we have to go nuclear.

Posted by: bradley | Nov 4, 2004 12:23:02 PM

Alexis, epoh, what the hell are you talking about when you say that Reid doesn't have the stomach for a fillibuster?

When the Republicans did their moronic Justice for Judges marathon last year and kept the Senate in session for 48 straight hours, who was the Democrat who went to the floor and counter-fillibustered for 9 straight hours to single-handedly screw up the GOP's plan? Reid.

He LIVES on the Senate floor. He's the best tactician we've got. I love Durbin--he'd be fantastic, too. But people who are knocking Reid for being too soft, too conciliatory, or too conservative have most likely never watched him on the Senate floor.

Posted by: jdb | Nov 4, 2004 2:26:16 PM

what about Daschle for DNC chair?
