Reaching Out

Today, Senate Majority Leader Bill Frist made an empassioned plea for unity and bipartisanship in the new Senate.

“It is time to heal the partisan divide and begin the process of reconciliation. Beginning last night, I spoke with many of my colleagues – Republican and Democrat – to begin that process. Now is the time for all citizens to lay partisan squabbling aside and work for a safer, healthier, more prosperous America. …This election is over. Our nation is at war. It’s time to overcome our differences, lay aside the rancor and get to work. The American people expect and deserve no less.”

But first, the Senator had to hop on his plane and do what was billed as a little “victory tour” of the South.
