Two days ago, a Republican leadership aide in the Senate boasted to me that Republicans were going to “out-ethics” the Democrats in this week’s debate over a lobbying and ethics bill, by pushing reforms–including an amendment by South Carolina Senator Jim DeMint–that went well beyond what the Democrats were proposing. Instead, late last night, they may have killed the bill entirely with their insistence upon also adding an amendment to give line-item veto power to the President.

A sign of things to come for Harry Reid.
