“There are few things more daunting in politics than the determined opposition of Senator McConnell.”

The 110th Senate could be some fun….from Time:

A person to watch will be incoming minority leader Mitch McConnell, one of the Senate’s canniest operators. After wrangling with McConnell for years over campaign-finance reform, Senator John McCain declared, “There are few things more daunting in politics than the determined opposition of Senator McConnell.” President Bush does not want to spend his last two years in office vetoing one Democratic measure after another. So McConnell will play a position much like the goalie in a hockey game, blocking legislation from ever reaching Bush’s desk.
