"Sen. Reid Weighs In"

Here's a fascinating tidbit from the Las Vegas Review Journal.

While Democrats across the country are anguished about the bitter fight for their presidential nomination, Senate Majority Leader Harry Reid doesn't appear to be losing any sleep over it.

Asked about it last week, Reid said he remains convinced the nominee will be decided well before the August national convention. He wore a serene and mysterious smile.

But Reid isn't one for lengthy explanations. The conversation went like this:

Question: Do you still think the Democratic race can be resolved before the convention?

Reid: Easy.

Q: How is that?

Reid: It will be done.

Q: It just will?

Reid: Yep.

Q: Magically?

Reid: No, it will be done. I had a conversation with Governor Dean (Democratic National Committee Chairman Howard Dean) today. Things are being done.

That's all the Nevada Democrat would say about it.

I'd like to see a little more evidence that something is being done, but it's encouraging to see Sen. Reid join Speaker Pelosi and Governor Richardson in suggesting we wrap this slugfest up.

Howie P.S.: Don't tarry, Harry. On a related issue Markos and Booman are pissed at Jerome Armstrong for his "Willful Stupidity (Booman's phrase)." Personally, I think he's a.....oh, never mind.
