  •  Well, Reid would've done his signature (0+ / 0-)

    wounded puppy routine for sure.

    Whether he'd do LBJ's bidding, however, is another question.

    Dogs from the street can have all the desirable qualities that one could want from pet dogs. Most adopted stray dogs are usually humble and exceptionally faithful to their owners as if they are grateful for this kindness. -- H.M. Bhumibol Adulyadej

    •  When he was minority leader, he came out punching (0+ / 0-)

      He was always using parliamentarian rules against the GOP as I remember it. Now he's the leader and it seems to be about "Why can't we all just get along?"

    •  LBJ would have made him pay (0+ / 0-)

      You could not cross LBJ without a paying a stiff price. That is why he was as effective as he was. He was not above carrying out nasty retribution and he had a LOOONG memory. People were rightly afraid to cross him.
