Senate Hijacked

Yesterday, Senate Minority Leader Harry Reid forced a closed door session of the Senate without consulting Republicans. This is the first time in 25 yers that one party has forced a closed door session without consuing the other party.

Maybe a heads-up would help to improve relations with the other side.

With no warning in the mid-afternoon, the Senate's top Democrat invoked the little-used Rule 21, which forced aides to turn off the chamber's cameras and close its massive doors after evicting all visitors, reporters and most staffers. Plans to bring in electronic-bug-sniffing dogs were dropped when it became clear that senators would trade barbs but discuss no classified information. (Source: Washington Post, Nov. 2, 2005)
