WASHINGTON -- Senate Majority Leader Harry Reid knows the value of collectibles -- he has a signed Grateful Dead poster at his home in Searchlight.
So after President Barack Obama offered him one of the 22 pens the president painstakingly used to sign his name to the landmark health care legislation on Tuesday -- the bill, in fact, Reid authored -- did the majority leader tuck the keepsake away? Put it on eBay?
Nope. Reid passed the pen along to his top health care staffer, Kate Leone, an aide many in Washington know from her late nights and arms full of documents at meetings in the Capitol.
Not quite the same as overtime pay, but a nice gesture.
