As Reid Falters, Schumer Subtly Stands in the Wings
By RAYMOND HERNANDEZ and JENNIFER STEINHAUER

WASHINGTON — Senator Charles E. Schumer shipped $500,000 to Nevada in recent weeks to help Harry Reid, the Senate majority leader and Mr. Schumer’s political patron and close friend, as he fights for his political life.

Senator Dick Durbin and Sen. Charles E. Schumer sat in a Capitol Hill home shared with Rep. George Miller and Rep. Bill Delahunt in 2007.
At the same time Mr. Schumer, a New York Democrat, made out a smaller check, for $20,000, to the Democratic Party in Vermont, where the gift earned him the good will of Senator Patrick J. Leahy, even though Mr. Leahy is not believed to be in any serious re-election jeopardy.

“Senator Leahy takes no election for granted and is grateful for Senator Schumer’s support,” said Carolyn Dwyer, campaign manager for Mr. Leahy.

The two donations underscore the excruciatingly delicate position Mr. Schumer finds himself in these days. He is doing everything he can to help his friend Mr. Reid fend off a challenge from the Tea Party candidate Sharron Angle and prevent the embarrassing ouster of the party leader.

Etc., etc.  You can see where this is leading.

reid for schumer sounds like a bad trade, but if chucky the frequent flier has a majority at all, it won't be a big one.  also, schumer can't keep his mouth shut, and says even dumber stuff than reid does.  schumer will at least be more entertaining than harry was.

the guy is a danger to the public on airplanes.  it's just a matter of time before he slaps a stewardess down.  you can't bury something like that when you are majority or minority leader.

Chucky never met a camera he didn`t ham it up in front of and with his nasty and abrasive NYC style he will turn off most of the country.
