We hope he’s OK. We have to make sure he remains alive long enough to see the massive landslide coming next November.
Senate Majority Leader Harry Reid was hospitalized early Friday morning as a “precaution” after feeling ill, a spokesman said, adding that doctors concluded “everything is normal” after testing.
“Early this morning, Senator Reid was not feeling well and as a precaution decided to go to the hospital. Tests have been conducted and everything is normal. He is alert, resting and feeling better,” spokesman Adam Jentleson said in a statement. “Doctors have asked that he remain in the hospital for observation so he will not be working today.”
Oddly enough doctors failed to detect a heart.
A Senate Democratic aide said that Reid was discussing upcoming legislation with his leadership colleagues by telephone on Friday morning.
Reid is 74. In an interview this week, he indicated that he has no intention of leaving his position as a top Senate leader, saying “I don’t want to do it more than eight more years.”
