Reid Gives Top Senate Spots To Worst Liberals

From the DNC’s house cable news network CNN:

[AP caption:] Former U.S. Presidential candidate John Kerry (background L) watches on as incoming U.S. Senate Majority leader Harry Reid (C)(D-NV) walks alongside his party colleagues on Capitol Hill November 14, 2006. Reid, a moderate Nevada Democrat, was elected by colleagues on Tuesday as U.S. Senate majority leader for the 110th Congress that will convene in January. The other top positions are (2nd L-R) Vice Chair of the Conference Charles Schumer (D-NY), Secretary of the Conference Patty Murray (D-WA) and Assistant Majority Leader Dick Durbin (D-IL).

Dem chairmanships announced

WASHINGTON (CNN) — Incoming senate Majority Leader Harry Reid, D-Nevada, announced Tuesday which Democratic senators will chair the senate’s twenty committees.

Agriculture: Sen. Tom Harkin, D-Iowa
Appropriations: Sen. Robert Byrd, D-West Virginia
Armed Services: Sen. Carl Levin, D-Michigan
Banking: Sen. Chris Dodd, D-Connecticut
Commerce: Sen. Daniel Inouye, D-Hawaii
Energy: Sen. Jeff Bingaman, D-New Mexico
Environment Public Works: Sen. Barbara Boxer, D-California
Finance: Sen. Max Baucus, D-Montana
Foreign Relations: Sen. Joe Biden, D-Delaware
Health, Education, Labor, and Pensions: Sen. Edward Kennedy, D-Massachusetts
Homeland and Government Affairs: Sen. Joe Lieberman, I-Connecticut
Judiciary: Sen. Patrick Leahy, D-Vermont

Indian Affairs: Sen. Byron Dorgan, D-North Dakota

By the way, the "moderate" Harry Reid was given an American Conservative Union rating of 4% (out of 100%) for 2005.

But compared to he new fellow Senate leaders, he’s not so bad.

The ACU also records those senators who received an absolute zero rating in 2005:

Worst of the Worst

Richard Durbin (D-IL) [Now Assistant Majority Leader]
Edward Kennedy (D-MA) [Now Chairman of Health, Education]
Patrick Leahy (D-VT) [Now Chairman of Judiciary]
Patty Murray (D-WA) [Now Secretary of the Democrat Caucus]

Our future is in capable hands.
