Reid's Future

John Fund writes in the Wall Street Journal that he believes that it is unlikely that Senate Majority Leader Harry Reid will ultimately run for re-election later this year. The 70 year old Senator is sufficiently far behind in the polls that it is increasingly unlikely that he can win.

That is probably correct. Sen. Reid will likely preside over passage of whatever health care reform bill that they can ultimately agree to and then announce his retirement not long thereafter. Democrats will applaud him, calling health care reform the crowning achievement of his brilliant career.

Of course, if the work on a compromise bill somehow blows up, the Majority Leader will be given a less ceremonious push out the door.
