Reid stumbles over his vote at the last minute

Senate Majority leader Harry Reid (D-Nev.), who has worked relentlessly to pass landmark health-care reform legislation, drew laughter during the final vote on the bill in the Senate Thursday morning when he started to vote against the bill instead of for it. When his name was called, Reid said "No. I mean, aye. Yes!" Then he shook his head sheepishly and did his trademark palms-up shrug as the chamber erupted in laughter. The bill was approved 60-39 in a party-line vote. (AP/AP)
