Getting To Know You...

The most powerful man in the GOP.
With his party in tatters, Mitch McConnell is now the most powerful Republican in the country — the lone GOP senator who can stand in the way of an unfettered liberal agenda in Washington, and a key go-to man to rehabilitate his party.

McConnell, a soft-spoken Washington insider from Kentucky with a canny understanding of Senate tactics, is an unlikely pick to be the GOP’s Stonewall Jackson. Yet by virtue of surviving a tight reelection for a fifth term and having no real challenger to his position as Senate minority leader, McConnell is positioned to be both the ultimate dealmaker and the Republican firewall against a leftward tilt in American government.
I really am a fan of checks & balances and as such was not terribly disappointed to see the Dems fall short of a 60 seat majority in the Senate. That's said, I prefer intelligent checks and balances. Here's hoping Senator McConnell is a good egg.
