WASHINGTON Senator Harry Reid, the tough tactician who has led Senate Democrats since 2005, will not seek re-election next year, bringing an end to a three-decade congressional career that culminated with his push of President Obamas ambitious agenda against fierce Republican resistance.
Mr. Reid, 75, who suffered serious eye and facial injuries in a Jan. 1 exercise accident at his Las Vegas home, said he had been contemplating retiring from the Senate for months. He said his decision was not attributable either to the accident or to his demotion to minority leader after Democrats lost the majority in Novembers midterm elections.

Chuckie is much more dangerous and evil than Dingy Harry ever contemplated.
Harry, you found out the hard way that wasn’t a gay
bar and the guy you tried to dance with wasn’t one
of the Village People. 2017 can’t come soon enough
for any of us, you butt nugget!
He can’t take any more beatdowns from his exercise machine.
I can't wait for the cat fight between Schumer and Durbin for Reid's leadership role. Elisabeth Warren will have to shove her fat nose in the fight for good measure.
The National Republican Senatorial Committee responds to Harry Reid’s retirement:
On the verge of losing his own election and after losing the majority, Senator Harry Reid has decided to hang up his rusty spurs. Not only does Reid instantly become irrelevant and a lame duck, his retirement signals that there is no hope for the Democrats to regain control of the Senate. With the exception of Reid, every elected statewide official in Nevada is Republican and this race is the top pickup opportunity for the GOP.
Bye Harry. No one’s going to miss you
its sad....that he won’t do the right thing....and RETIRE IMMEDIATELY!!
Had a backroom discussion with a treadmill, maybe.
They’re going to have to dig up Lautenberg’s corpse and have him fill in again.
I’m wondering if this is part of the transition back to the Clinton Crime Family rule?
I view Dingy more as part of the Obama regime, and we have Clinton capo Shuck Choomer (presumptively) taking over the Dem side of the Senate.
he clearly wants to eek out the last ounce of RETRIBUTION he can muster....on the American People!!
Hairy The Rustler Reed!! INDEED!
Well, the black eye is the right eye, and Obama is left handed .... so .....
“IMAGINE a senate without Harry Reid” Look at Dick Durbin or Chck Schumer as replacements. yuk! They would be even worse.
I read the comments at the link. Only about 10% favorable to Harry! 8^)
The REALLY good news is now McCain has lost his protection.
With careful selection, we could capture NV and kick Captain Queeg to the curb.
