    excited about this:
    a) the positions were relatively minor
    b) we have no clue what was sacrificed to get it.

    Knowing Reid's track record B worries me quite a lot.

    •  Reid's track record? (2+ / 0-)

      Please remind me of some of Reid's famous negotiating failures.

      You may be confusing Sen Harry Reid with another poker player with an altogether different reputation for his style of bargaining.

    •  hope we didn't give up too much for this (0+ / 0-)

      for example:

      Arthur H. Sulzer, of Pennsylvania, to be a Member of the Advisory Board of the
      Saint Lawrence Seaway Development Corporation.
      I'm sure Arthur is an excellent chap but I don't think he will dramatically alter the world, at least not by virtue of this position.

      Obama 2012...going to win it with our support!!!
