HOH’s One-Minute Recess: The Results of Reid vs. Boehner

Posted December 15, 2010 at 10:53am

On Tuesday, we linked to a story on Esquire magazine’s website that argued that despite the fuss being made over Speaker-designate John Boehner’s (R-Ohio) touching rags-to-riches story, Senate Majority Leader Harry Reid (D-Nev.) actually comes from a tougher background. So we asked readers to e-mail us with their thoughts on who is tougher: Reid or Boehner.

Turns out it really wasn’t much of a contest — or maybe Republicans were too busy to weigh in: Boehner didn’t get a single tough-guy vote.
