What's wrong with these people? The two parties are supposed to work hard to find common ground, not work hard to ignore it when it obviously exists. Sure, Senate Majority Leader Harry Reid (D-Nev.) has joined with Sen. Russ Feingold (D-Wis.) on legislation to cut off war funding by March 31, 2008 — but he hasn't engaged Snowe, who reportedly approves of March 31, 2008 as a target date for ending combat operations.
Reid has a majority of one with Sen. Tim Johnson (D-S.D.) still recovering from brain surgery. In a 50-49 Senate, what could possibly be the reason he isn't he looking for more votes?
