Harry Reid: Foiled Again

Harry Reid's second attempt to pass a non-binding resolution against the deployment of troops to Iraq failed to get enough votes to pass the Senate during a rare Saturday session. Falling six votes short of the 60 needed for passage, Reid still declared victory, pointing out that a majority stood against the escalation. Only a Democrat like Reid could still think he's a winner when he's been embarrased. Perhaps he's just not proving as adept at leading the Senate as he thought he was.

But the battle is far from over. The House passed its anti-troop resolution on Friday. And both chambers will now start debating funding the troops. And Democrats, led by John Murtha, are looking to keep the money from getting to the brave men and women who need it.

Round two coming up.
