Senator John McCain called it a "seminal moment."
That was the moment when Senate Majority Leader Harry Reid decided Thursday evening to pull the 1,924-page, $1.27 trillion omnibus spending bill.
This was indeed a turning point and a Huge Victory for those who are determined to lessen the size and scope of government.
But Republicans should not gloat or regale in this victory -- far from it.
There is much more hard work to be done.
Still, this is an important step and a dramatic moment in the fight to control federal spending.
