Reid will be taking many of his cues from his fellow Democrat in the White House. On the campaign trail, Obama emphasized completing comprehensive immigration legislation and passing a jobs plan he introduced in the fall of 2011. But the lack of bipartisan partners, and the absence of negotiating stalwarts such as the late Sen. Edward Kennedy (D-Mass.), who was the lead sponsor of a failed effort on immigration early in Obama’s first term, could pose a challenge for Reid, who, more than committee chairmen, seemed to be at the center of all the major policy debates in this Congress.
It’s a full plate for Reid, but he asked for it.
