Give 'em hell, Harry

Harry Reid, the Senate Majority Leader, granted an interview to one of his home state papers, The Las Vegas Review-Journal. The article suggested that Senator Reid, while he continues to maintain a relationship with Senator Lieberman, has little regard for Senator McCain:
Senate Majority Leader Harry Reid, D-Nev., defended Connecticut Sen. Joe Lieberman on Wednesday after the former Democratic vice presidential nominee accepted a speaking slot at next month's Republican convention in Minnesota.

"He has a close personal relationship with John McCain. I don't fully understand why he does," said Reid, who said Lieberman called Tuesday from the Republic of Georgia to alert him to the move.

"I told him last night, 'You know, Joe, I can't stand John McCain.' He said, 'I know you feel that way,' " Reid said.
While we all can share his sense of Senator McCain, I am sure that many of us find his fondness of Joe Lieberman a little mystifying.

I think Lieberman is crazy for supporting McCain, but I don't think he should be kicked out of the Democratic caucus next year. The Senate is not a place where you cannot afford to lose a single vote.

No mystery why Reid is "fond" of Lieberman. He's the Senate Majority Leader and needs Lieberman to be part of the majority.

I have to confess that I think his vote is his most appealing feature.

It's his only appealing feature.
