Good News Friday...

November 17, 2006 10:47 AM

Mitch McConnell was elected Senate Minority Leader this week.  Last night, he had this to say to the Federalist Society:

Forty-nine is not a bad number of Senators to have, in a chamber that requires sixty to control.  And I can assure you that our Democratic friends will give President Bush's judicial nominees a floor vote - if they want to get anything done, in a chamber that requires 60 to control.

Mitch McConnell is already doing more as minority leader than Bill Frist was willing to do as majority leader.
