Reid: "NO," "YES"

Harry Reid, right, votes "no" on his hard-fought health care bill, right before he votes "yes." You can't quite hear it (other than the Senate's laughter), but his gestures speak for themselves.

Later in an interview, he said:

“To be honest, I’d like to say I was trying to be funny or create some bipartisanship. ... But I was just in dreamland, thinking about where we had come. Some said ‘oh bipartisanship or trying to be funny.’ It was neither quite frankly. It was just, I am bushed.”

“And I don’t mean George Bushed.”
