Harry Reid 'dares' GOP in interview, and...

PEEK contributor Bob Geiger sat down for a one on one with incoming Senate Majority Leader Harry Reid on Friday.

They talked impeachment: "I haven't been interested in impeachment for some time because of two words: Dick Cheney."

They talked retribution: "I think first of all you have to apply a very simple principle: It's called the Golden Rule. I will not treat them like they treated me. We're going to have Congress the way it ran for more than 200 years."

They talked goals: To show you how strongly we feel about this, we told the Republicans that there will be no Congressional pay raise unless you raise the minimum wage. There's no minimum wage increase, there's no Congressional pay raise for the first time in many years... I guess I put it in this vernacular: I dare the Republicans to stop us from doing it.
