Trouble brewing for Reid?

The majority Democrats inside the Democratic Caucus are getting pretty fed up with Harry Reid's stewardship. Although she doesn't have a direct say, the eyerolling and evident frustration of Nancy Pelosi seems sybolic of the growing impatience with Reid.

From the current tone, it's feeling more like there will be a leadership battle after the 2010 elections.

Reid was elected as a Minority leader whose job was to finagle and negotiate. Now that there's a strong majority, the personality requirements have changed.

My vote is for Chuck Schumer who seems to be leading the opposition.

(This challenge might just be a feint to pressure Reid on Healthcare.)
