Video: Senator on Nuclear Option: 'It Will Ruin Our Country'

In response to Harry Reid Threatens to Go Nuclear – In 2005 He Felt Differently (Video):

Asked in 2008 if he would ever invoke the nuclear option like the nasty R-words once considered, Majority Leader answered, “as long as I am the Leader, the answer is no. I think we should just forget that. That is a black chapter in the history of the Senate. I hope we never -ever get to that again because I really do believe it will ruin our country.”
