Reid shuts Senate down

For a few hours today, if you were watching C-SPAN or C-SPAN2 today, you would not have seen any session of the Senate as Senator Harry Reid was able to shut it down.

The afternoon halt in Senate business let Democrats steer the spotlight to the war in Iraq, an issue on which the president is doing badly in public opinion polls.[...]

"The Libby indictment provides a window into what this is really all about, how this administration manufactured and manipulated intelligence in order to sell the war in Iraq and attempted to destroy those who dared to challenge its actions," Reid said before invoking Senate rules that led to the closed session.

Congressmen Kendrick Meek, Tim Ryan, and Debbie Wasserman Schultz are just giving it to the GOP for the lack of leadership.

Tim Kaine supports Vivian Page for Norfolk City Council Treasurer.

The West Wing will be live on Sunday.

Will former Senator John Edwards be a candidate for Governor in 2008? It's a good question.
