Does the White House think Harry Reid's a goner?

Yep.

Dingy Harry needs to retire with his free health care.

Chucky Schumer? So they assume that the Democrats can hold the senate? I beg to disagree.

Is it just me, or does the title "Leader Schummer", make you nauseous?

Also, Reid is a hapless fool, almost slow. Schummer, OTOH, isn't. He's abrasive, hypocritical, prone to fits of hysteria, and plain irritating, but he's not an idiot.

While it will be nice to have the additional Republican vote should Reid be undone, his replacement might be worse, should the GOP not be able to take back the Senate, as well.

Reid is toast.

But by God, Schumer is a complete monster. A scheming malicious socialist tyrant of the worst sort.

successor to Reid as Senate majority leader?

Joseph Stalin's spawn may have someone worth taking a look at; otherwise, maybe Cuba strongman Raul Castro might be a good candidate. That way, Reid could leave, and they wouldn't miss a beat.

In a pretty unusual move, it publicly weighed in on a potential Reid successor -- without the usual boilerplate disclaimer about not wanting to address a hypothetical situation. On the record, White House Press Secretary Robert Gibbs offered that Obama "has a good record of working well with both" Schumer and Durbin. "Obviously, he has a longer, more personal relationship with Sen. Durbin as a result of being home-state colleagues and for his help getting him elected in 2004 and 2008," Gibbs said.
