ROUGH CUT (NO REPORTER NARRATION) Harry Reid, the current senate majority leader and newly chosen minority leader for the next congressional session, said he and the Democratic caucus are ready to move forward on bipartisan bills that will help leave a record of accomplishment. "We have a lot of bills that are bipartisan. We're going to sit down and see if we can get the Republicans to agree that they want to pass bipartisan bills," Reid told reporters Thursday (November 13). "We want to legislate. We are not for stalling. We want to move on to the next Congress with a record of accomplishment." Reid will begin as minority leader in January, after the Republicans gained political control of the Senate following Democratic losses during the November congressional elections. "This is not get even time," Reid said. "I do not intend to run the Democratic caucus like the Republican caucus has been run in the minority."
