On Tuesday, we linked to a story on Esquire magazineís website that argued that despite the fuss being made over Speaker-designate John Boehnerís (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 wasnít much of a contest ó or maybe Republicans were too busy to weigh in: Boehner didnít get a single tough-guy vote.
