Bye, Bye . . . Harry?

We have known for some time that Harry Reid’s polling numbers are horrid. He is the perfect storm candidate — the prime mover of ObamaCare, the leader of the Democratic Party at a time it is perceived as too liberal, and the politician with an endless gaffe supply. He is also getting clubbed with his stance on card check by the Lt. Governor Brian Krolicki, among others.

Reid may have no escape from his dilemma. He’s increasingly an embarrassment even (especially?) to his own party. Unlike more adept politicians and those not in leadership positions, Reid likely won’t be able to run too far from Obama’s agenda. In fact, it is his job to get it passed. And come to think of it, since he has utterly failed to do that, it’s hard to understand why the Democrats would spend too much time, money, or political capital trying to rescue him. If they are going to lose a bunch of seats anyway, why not at least offload Reid? I suspect Richard Durbin and Chuck Schumer may have similar thoughts.
