2. Wot?

I'd say Bernie can't be Senate Majority Leader 'cause he's not a member of the majority party (an Independent, not a Dem).

But what do you mean by "not the Senate?" just curious.

3. I think what is being said is that Democrats in the Senate have no plans to dump Reid

and if they did, Bernie wouldn't be their first, second, or third choice. Not because Bernie isn't a great Senator, but because being Majority Leader requires herding cats and that's not Bernie's strength.

6. Just so. He's not a member of the party.

I was just being ambiguously curt.

Beside, he can talk to people. Most other senators address them. Another demerit.
