Harry Reid’s Dumb Move

I was amazed to see that Senate Majority Leader Harry Reid apparently has reneged on his pledge to Arlen Specter that Specter could keep his seniority if he switched from Republican to Democrat, which Specter has, of course, since done.

Writing for U.S. News & World Report, my old friend Peter Roff says the Democrats are making the wrong political calculation.

I think he’s right. In a big way.
