President Obama’s White House luncheon today with more than a dozen members of Congress is not a working lunch. It’s a photo-op designed to make newly empowered GOP leaders Speaker John Boehner and Senate Minority Leader Mitch McConnell part of a herd. Rather than a summit – a meeting to facilitate negotiations among equals – this is the head of state holding court for the benefit of the cameras. The question of how the earthquake on Tuesday has changed Washington won’t be seen in gritted grins over tureens of mushroom soup but rather in how Obama and outgoing Senate Majority Leader Harry Reid approach the final 54 days of Democratic control of the Senate. The initial indications suggest conciliation will not be on the menu.

Considering that Reid only won his last election by a hundred votes or so, it would seem that even if he tries to run again, he will lose.

The Mexican Hispanic Republican governor of Nevada was just re-elected with 78% of the vote, so what chance does a liberal extremist "has been" old rich white man like Reid have for re-election now that he is a nobody--but it is the Republicans who are supposed to be the racists?
