"My Republican colleagues claim that nominees are entitled to an up-down vote. That claim ignores history, including recent history." - Harry Reid, April 2005
"These nominees deserve at least an up-or-down vote. But Republican filibusters deny them a fair vote and deny the President his team." - Harry Reid, November 21, 2013
My prediction: next time the GOP has a narrow Senate majority and the White House, Harry Reid will see the wisdom of his 2005 self, and will not even remember his 2013 policy.
