Nancy Pelosi: Watching Harry Reid 'Was Like Watching a Master at Work

"He was superb, intellectually, politically astute."

House Minority Leader Nancy Pelosi lauded Senate Majority Leader Harry Reid on Wednesday afternoon as she reacted to a last minute deal struck between Senate Republicans and Democrats to raise the debt ceiling and reopen government.

"I salute -- I never saw anything like what Harry Reid did," Pelosi told MSNBC's Andrea Mitchell. "To watch him was to watch a master at work."

"He was superb, intellectually, politically astute," she continued. "Just the sheer stamina of it all. It’s a sign of the respect that his members have for him."

On Wednesday afternoon, the U.S. Senate formally announced its plan to end the government shutdown and avoid a potential default. The finalized deal would extend the debt limit through Feb. 7, reopen the government and keep it funded through Jan. 15.
