Harry Reid: ?It Will Be Done?
Posted on Mar 26, 2008
In a cryptic conversation with a Las Vegas paper, Senate Majority Leader Harry Reid said the Democratic nomination would be resolved before the convention: “It will be done.” “Magically?” the reporter asked. “No, it will be done,” Reid repeated. “I had a conversation with Governor Dean today. Things are being done.”
What that means is anyone’s guess, but it’s no secret that the Democratic leadership is worried about a protracted battle between Barack Obama and Hillary Clinton.

Las Vegas Review-Journal:
While Democrats across the country are anguished about the bitter fight for their presidential nomination, Senate Majority Leader Harry Reid doesn’t appear to be losing any sleep over it.
Asked about it last week, Reid said he remains convinced the nominee will be decided well before the August national convention. He wore a serene and mysterious smile.
But Reid isn’t one for lengthy explanations. The conversation went like this:
Question: Do you still think the Democratic race can be resolved before the convention?
Q: How is that?
Reid: It will be done.
Q: It just will?
Reid: No, it will be done. I had a conversation with Governor Dean (Democratic National Committee Chairman Howard Dean) today. Things are being done.
That’s all the Nevada Democrat would say about it.
