Harry Reid, the New Democrat Leader
What's the board's opinion of this guy, huh? He's pretty conservative: anti-abortion and a Mormon and a teetotaler.

Thanks for posting Reid's Nolan Chart...along with all that information.
I'd guess filling in the Nolan and posting it here is fairly straightforward., albeit pretty resourceful of you ..How'd you go about compiling all the preliminary info though?

It was simple! Gordon selected some stats and copied the chart from this site:

I can't figure out if he reminds me more of Henry Gibson or Wally Cox.

Harry Reid? What kind of American name is that? Sounds like a fuckin' Brit, you ask me.
November-17th-2004, 12:31 PM
Does it matter? The moment he votes against something Bush wants he'll be labeled as an obstructionist-tax-and-spend-liberal who's too far outside the American mainstream.

Yeah, you're supposed to be a borrow madly-and-spend big gubmint "conservative" to be inside the mainstream.
And they are, the mainstream being as idiotic as anyone it elects, let's face it. The "heartland," wherever exactly it's located (and who said so?), can wipe my ass as far's I'm concerned.
