Politico on Partisanship
Thought this was interesting, though in no way surprising. From Politico's morning e-mail:
SENATE PARTISANS: The Hill did an interesting experiment, asking all 99 sitting senators who they thought were the most and least partisan. From J.T. Rushing: 'Edward Kennedy (D-Mass.) and Susan Collins (R-Maine) are the easiest senators to work with, while Patrick Leahy (D-Vt.) and Jim Bunning (R-Ky.) are the most partisan members of the upper chamber, according to a survey conducted by The Hill. ... Democrats singled out Bunning, David Vitter (La.), Tom Coburn (Okla.) and DeMint as the most difficult. One Democratic senator called them 'a bunch of 4-year-olds.' Several Democrats said Bunning in particular is so irascible that they don't even try to speak to the Hall of Fame pitcher unless it's about baseball.'
