I think Reid does precisely what Obama wants him to do.

Lacking a House majority, using the Senate as they do, gives them the most power; albeit less than total power.

Boehner lacks the degree of control in the House, that Reid wields in the Senate.

But is that a bad thing or a good thing?  Do we really want complete lock-step voting by party, as is the norm in many parliamentary systems where the government of the day can stand or fall on whether the prime minister and his party have complete control over the members of their own party?
