“No one could make a greater mistake than he who did nothing
because he could do only a little.”

Harry Reid, in 1974, first ran for the United States Senate against

receive votes that otherwise would have gone
to Reid: especially, if the appeal is directed at
people who are not conservative.… Read more ...
