Right-to-Carry Reciprocity Legislation Introduced in U.S. Senate

NRA-ILA Sends:
Right-to-Carry Reciprocity Legislation Introduced in U.S. Senate: Senate Bill 2188, an important self-defense bill that would enable millions of Right-to-Carry permit holders across the country to carry concealed firearms while traveling outside their home states, was introduced in the U.S. Senate today. S. 2188 is the companion legislation to H.R. 822, which passed the U.S. House of Representatives on November 16, 2011 by a majority bipartisan vote of 272 to 154.
Speculation is that the sponsors want a "clean bill" instead of simply putting the House reciprocity bill, which already passed, up for vote because it will have their names on it, or something. Also, since this is a Senate bill, and not simply voting on the House bill, they will have to have a reconciliation phase between the two. (Will they, even if the two are identical?)
Questions: Will Harry Reid, who is usually good on the Second Amendment if little else, support this? Will he find ways to stall it or kill it in committee, in order to give cover to Party of Evil politicians running for election this year?
And wouldn't you love to see His Imperial Majesty Barack Hussein Obama struggle with what signal to send, vis a vis gun rights, in a year when his own chance of re-election are looking poorer and poorer every day?
