Harry Reid and Partial-Birth Abortion


Jonathan:  I think that your condemnation of Senate Democratic leader Harry Reid gives him too much credit in suggesting that he might have actually believed that the federal partial-birth law that he voted for was unconstitutional.  It seems far more likely—especially in light of the serious ethics charges (Abramoff-related and otherwise) that have been raised against him—that Reid is cravenly doing whatever is necessary to hold onto his leadership position.
