Sharron Angle wasn't the only person who lost out when Harry Reid won his race. Chuck Schumer had been angling to become the new Senate majority leader if Reid went down, and he was probably the favorite to get the position, too. But despite some reports that he's still considering challenging Reid, a Schumer spokesman says such talk is "completely made up." Who would want that job anyway? It was hard enough being majority leader when Democrats had 59 seats. For the next two years they'll have 53. We'd let Reid have it, also. [Ben Smith/Politico]
