DEFIANCE-Inside the final days of the election Harry Reid couldn’t win
Back when he was in law school at George Washington and working full-time as a Capitol Hill cop, and Landra was pregnant with their second and his car died and the schedule was killing him, Reid went to one of the deans of the law school — fellow named Potts — to plead his case and ask for some financial assistance. And Potts came back at him with “Mr. Reid, maybe the law is not for you. Why don’t you just quit?” Instead, Reid doubled his course load, finished law school early, and vowed to leave that miserable town and never go back. So he’s got more than a little chip on his shoulder.
