Somewhere between 2005 and 2013, Sen. Majority Leader Harry Reid's fears have apparently been laid to rest.
If we welcome the "nuclear option" for some votes, the Senate will be no different than the House of Representatives, Reid warned in 2005. "We do not want that."
Harry Reid this week that the Senate must "evolve": "The American people believe the Senate is broken, and I believe the American people are right," he said, adding: “It’s time to get the Senate working again."
