TOO BAD SHE'S NOT UP UNTIL '18:

Harry Reid Wants to Talk About the Vatican (Jason Horowitz, 11/26/14, NY Times)

After a brief discussion about the pope's opponents in the Catholic hierarchy, Mr. Reid, a Mormon from Searchlight, Nev., brought up the name of perhaps the pontiff's most vocal critic, the American cardinal Raymond L. Burke, a once enormously powerful prelate who has lost key Vatican positions under Francis. [...]

"Now Claire McCaskill and others just hate the man," said Mr. Reid, referring to the current Missouri senator, who had declined to vote for him for Democratic leader earlier in the day. Then Mr. Reid added that he had had a good conversation with Cardinal Burke and enjoyed it.

"I said, 'What do you do with all your time?'" Mr. Reid said. "'I pray a lot.' That's what I remember about the conversation."

Then Mr. Reid slid farther back into his chair, smiled slightly, and said of Mr. Burke, "He's basically ambassador to Searchlight now."
