47. Sorry for the late reply
I just got back into town after an early morning departure....

What are the political reasons?

Well, to start with, we're the loyal opposition therefore it is our duty to oppose the other party's attempts to install their philosophy into government (and especially when it's for as long as another generation).

Then there is the matter of preserving our future options. If we do not exercise all of our franchised means of opposition, then we tacitly forfeit our right/ability to use them in the future.

All this is very "egghead" stuff, I know, but I think these would be paramount in my considerations if I were in Harry Reid's position.

(I know....right now you're saying THANK GOD he's not in Harry Reid's position! :rofl: )
