this proud Democrat--often ridiculed for even saying that--tips his cap to a new and more open Senate, as voiced by my Sen. Durbin.
Sen. McConnell will not allow the government to shut down, period.
He's doing the little things needed to keep his Majority Leader position, in spite of a bad 2016 map.
After the Netanyahu speech, which I'm sure McConnell wasn't a part of, we have the 'doc fix' problem in March.
With the highway trust fund about to go broke in May, I can see him attach KXL to this very important Transportation bill.
This was my original preference, to have a long-term approach to energy, infrastructure and transportation .
