Harry Reid comes to the mother ship

I understand that Harry Reid is going to be giving a speech at BYU in a couple of days. I think that this is awesome. It will be great to hear what he has to say in what I assume is going to be a very conservative setting but one that will not be so hostile because of his Mormon roots (Reid joined the church with his wife while in college at Utah State). I hope that he spends some time talking about his conversion experience because I am sure that it is a great story.
Oddly enough, the BYU democrats boycotted and made a loud stink over Dick Cheney coming to talk on campus last year and I am glad to see that we are better than that and welcome people coming to share their non-terrorist or hostile ideas (you have to draw a line somewhere).
I thought that it would be a good idea to post in a forum on the comments board some questions to ask Harry. Maybe one of you who are going to attend the speech can get one of our questions asked and hopefully answered (although I fear that Mr. Reid, just like all politicians, will dance and dance around any direct questions). Post your questions and have your friends do likewise.

  1. To see the full transcript of Mr. Reid’s comments at BYU, check out this website. He did not say very much about anything and it was a typical “fireside” type of talk, but it was nice to hear a bit about his conversion story.
