Schumer regime promises a sharp break from Reid

Politico reports:
Schumer is predisposed to accommodate the various factions of the Democratic coalition: his actions in the coal miners row demonstrated how seriously he takes the mandate to help his party's withering moderate wing. The approach will be nothing short of a sea change from Reid’s singular style of combative, shoot-from-the-hip politics.

The Democratic leadership transition, under way for more than a year and described by more than a dozen senators and top aides in interviews for this story, will consummate officially on Tuesday when the new Congress is sworn in.
