The Trouble With Harry

March 3rd, 2009at 06:12pm Posted by Eli

My only problem with this Sirota column is that he suggests that progressives should not try to get rid of Harry Reid if he delivers the Democratic votes for EFCA.  If he does that, under threat of electoral death, it will be one of the few times in his career as Minority or Majority Leader.  Which is precisely why I want to see him gone, regardless of the outcome of the EFCA vote.

We desperately need a Majority Leader who doesn’t let “moderate” Democrats do whatever they want, and who doesn’t let a tiny Republican minority outmaneuver and run roughshod over him at every turn.  As I’ve said before, sacrificing one Democratic seat in exchange for a tough, savvy, effective Majority Leader would be the best trade the Democrats could make.
