Cash for Clunkers is such a unanticipated success that they burned thru the pilot money in five days. Car sales went up, consumer confidence is up, housing is up, engines are more fuel efficient, new car owners are happy, and car dealers are happier.

Think away, Sen. Reid. [update: Harry thought right]
