Earlier today, I mentioned that — or alluded to the fact that — Harry Reid called Chris Coons, the Democratic Senate nominee in Delaware, “my pet.” Days later, he referred to Kirsten Gillibrand, the Democratic senator from New York, as “the hottest member.” My question: If he feels so strongly, shouldn’t Gillibrand be his pet? Another question: If Reid wins in Nevada, and the Democrats retain the Senate, will the Democrats keep him as majority leader? Or have they had enough?
P.S. The title of this post is not an allusion to Senator Gillibrand.
