50 IN '10!:

Sen. Reid Hits the Ground Running in Uphill Re-Election Bid (T.W. FARNAM, 12/27/08, Wall Street Journal)

Sen. Harry Reid will command the biggest party majority of any Senate leader in a quarter century when the new Congress convenes in January. But the Nevada Democrat is already worried about his own re-election fight in 2010.

Sen. Reid, perhaps the most-vulnerable Democrat who will face re-election in a midterm race that is likely to favor his party once again, began interviewing campaign managers last week. The Senate majority leader also recently stepped up fund-raising.

Starting early could help Sen. Reid avoid the fate of his predecessor, Tom Daschle, who was Democratic leader for a decade before losing his re-election bid in South Dakota in 2004.


They try to put a moderate face on the Party but leading it kills whomever they choose back home.
