When your lede paragraph is:

Questioning the wisdom of Alan Greenspan in political Washington is akin to challenging the integrity of the pope in Rome, so figures in both parties agreed yesterday that the top Senate Democrat's description of the Federal Reserve Board chairman as a "political hack" was a blunder.

One would imagine the article would contain at least one quote by a Democrat that didn't support Reid.

There are numerous reasons for having a non-partisan independent Fed chairman. There are even reasons for continuing to pretend that your partisan Fed chairman is in fact non-partisan even after he crosses the line. But, Greenspan has abused this courtesy for far too many years.
