While talking with Republican senate candidate Sid Dinsdale this morning, I made a comment about how he could work with dirtbags like Sen. Harry Reid.  Dinsdale responded that he wasn't sure yet whether Sen. Reid was as I described him.  A perfectly reasonable answer; I've never talked with Harry Reid myself.

But former Defense Secretary Bob Gates has.
