Defining victory down

In Deal, Reid's Aide Named to NRC

"In a deal to let 175 of President Bush's nominees take office, an adviser to new Democratic leader Harry M. Reid, the Senate's staunchest opponent of a nuclear waste dump in his home state of Nevada, will be named to the Nuclear Regulatory Commission," the Washington Post reports.

Roll Call calls it Reid's "first major political victory" as the new Democratic leader.


Bush gets 175 of his nominees through. Reid gets one of his toadiesadvisers in at NRC. Sounds like a great victory doesn't it?</sarcasm>

It's interesting how our new leaders "first major political victory" is a victory only for the leader and not much else for the rest of the party. Is this why he wanted the Minority Leader job?
