Senate Majority Leader Harry Reid has reportedly made his choice for the three Democratic Senators to sit on the Catfood Commission II: Patty Murray (WA), Max Baucus (MT) and John Kerry (MA).

Additionally, Murray is expected to co-chair the committee -- officially named the Joint Select Committee on Deficit Reduction -- along with a still unnamed House Republican. A spokesman for Reid did not respond to a request for comment.

Reid’s decision to tap Murray will likely be met with scrutiny, as she is also chairing the Senate Democrats’ campaign operation for the 2012 election cycle. But she is also a member of leadership, a senior member of the Budget Committee, and a woman on what is likely to be a male-dominated committee.

It could be worse. For instance, Kent Conrad or Joe Manchin (who lobbied for the position) or Mark Warner would be worse, from the standpoint of protecting Social Security, Medicare and Medicaid or raising taxes on rich people.
