Harry Reid, in classic Harry Reid style, utterly dismissed the presidential aspirations of his Senate colleague Bernard E. Sanders, former Sen. Jim Webb and former Maryland Gov. Martin O’Malley in one biting sentence in an interview airing Friday.  

For the Senate minority leader, the independent from Vermont and the Democrats from Virginia and Maryland governor, respectively, don’t even merit a mention.  

“Right now we have Hillary Clinton. And that’s it,” the Nevada Democrat told MSNBC’s and Telemundo’s Jose Diaz-Balart. “There’s not another Barack Obama out there. There are no all stars out there. She has a clear field and I’m glad she does.”
