Harry Reid Reads Democracy Arsenal
Posted by Michael Cohen

A couple of days ago, I wrote a post that attacked Senate Majority Leader Harry Reid for taking a pragmatic approach toward Iraq and offering legislation that will seek compromise with Senate Republicans as opposed to holding their feet to the fire for opposing withdrawal.

Well I'm pleased to say that solely because of my words, Reid has completely reversed course:

After weeks of suggesting Democrats would temper their approach to Iraq legislation in a bid to attract more Republicans, Senate Majority Leader Harry Reid declared abruptly Tuesday that he had no plans to do so.

The Democratic leader said he will call for a vote this month on several anti-war proposals, including one by Sen. Carl Levin that would insist President Bush end U.S. combat next summer. The proposals would be mandatory and not leave Bush wiggle room, said Reid, D-Nev.

"There (are) no goals. It's all definite timelines," he told reporters of the planned legislation.

Good for Harry! It's so rare to see an esteemed politician realize the error of his/her ways due solely to provocative and insightful blogging!

Now if only I could get President Bush to read Democracy Arsenal.
