New Democratic Leader Chosen For The U.S. Senate

Democrats in the U.S. Senate have chosen their new leader, after Tom Daschle lost his re-election bid.

Senator Harry Reid of Nevada was named Senate Minority Leader. Democrats have the fewest senators since the Great Depression and the choice of Reid isn't without some disagreement.

Reid opposes abortion rights and gun control, issues typically championed by the party.
