Reid shuffles Senate schedule for 'decent news cycle

If partisan gridlock in Congress isn't enough, Senate Majority Leader Harry Reid admitted to shuffling the voting schedule in order to get better media coverage.

When asked last week about the status of a jobs bill, Reid told the Washington Post, "We’re not going to do that at midnight tonight. We’re going to have the votes when you folks can write about it during a decent news cycle."

That raises the question: So long as there are presidential campaigns going on, when is exactly would be a decent news cycle for the Senate? 2013?
