120. If you recall, people in Nebraska and Maine WANTED healthcare reform.
It was their turncoat senators who turned their backs on them. And I believe force is necessary to get people to do what is right. Without force we would have never passed civil rights legislation or social security. LBJ had many shortcomings but he knew how to lead the senate, Reid doesn't have a clue. He never once even forced republicans to actually go through the motions of a filibuster. All republicans had to do was whisper that word and Reid ran to the nearest corner trembling with fear. (okay, that last sentence might have been a bit strong and flowery but there still is a lot of truth in it :). How did Reid ever win any of his boxing matches? I can't even imagine him in a ring with anyone trading blows. I'd seriously like to know what his boxing record is.

I heard Nevada had an option for 'none of the above' on their ballot. I haven't verified that but I bet it gets a lot of votes in the Reid-Angle election. Are they the best Nevada has? That's scary...
