The WaPo has a soft piece on Chuck Schumer which predicts he may replace Harry Reid as Senate Majority Leader after the midterms.

Man! I couldn't be more excited. I've been hoping for this switch since the 2008 Majority Leader election. Schumer is a Democrat who fights.

(Related: Dana Milbank notes that Repub Minority Leader McConnell is swinging wildly to the right after Rand Paul defeated McConnell's hand picked prototype in that Senate primary.)


  • I agree with you about Schumer. Every time I hear him talk I get stoked up as opposed to drifting off when Harry speaks. Am I mistaken or didn't McConnell have a brush with defeat in the last general election?

  • It wasn't too close to defeat, but it was closer than it should have been.
