Harry Reid as a young man

By Ezra Klein

Mark Warren's profile of Harry Reid is a great read, but what really caught my eye was this photograph of the Senate majority leader as a young man. Reid is second from the left:

That image struck me as well, he looks quite the roue.

Let me add that in Reid's heart and in his mind's eye, he still looks and feels like that. Ezra, you're still young and can't fully appreciate how powerful that effect is.

He cut quite a dashing figure as a youngster. Not so much, any more.

BTW, I cut a dashing and rouge-ish figure in my youth. However, I'm more than aware that's not how it is, now.

Proving once again that the family pictures of those in the 50-70 age range are more likely to cause hilarity for their hairstyles and dress than any generation since the invention of the camera!

ah, the era of the clip-ons. Priceless. Does anyone else see an ever so slight resemblence to what I assume must be his brother to his right to one former President?
