Reid on Bush on Iraq: He just doesn't get it

"He doesn't understand the urgency ... It's all victory for him."

Soon-to-be Senate Majority Leader Harry Reid sat down for a post-election interview with the Washington Post Tuesday, and he made it as clear as he could that Iraq would be the No. 1 priority for his Senate Democrats: "Three Americans killed yesterday, four British; 150 Iraqis taken out of that building and kidnapped; 1,800-plus went through that one Baghdad morgue but that doesn't count all the dead ... My displeasure with the president, he doesn't understand the urgency of this. It's all victory for him, but I don't know what that means anymore in Iraq. I do know what we are doing now doesn't work."
