Sen. Mitch McConnell vows major changes as majority leader

Mitch McConnell is close to achieving his dream of becoming Senate majority leader and has told colleagues to expect a radically different working environment next year.

Friends and allies of the senior Republican senator from Kentucky say McConnell has yearned for this moment throughout his career in Washington. He wants to etch his name in the history books alongside his idol, Kentucky Sen. Henry Clay, who is known as the Great Compromiser.

“It’s his lifetime goal. He is a person of the Senate,” said former Sen. Judd Gregg (R-N.H.), a close friend of McConnell’s who used to sit on his Senate leadership team by special invitation.
“He’s always wanted to be majority leader and this would be a fulfillment of that,” added Gregg, who is a columnist for The Hill.

McConnell faced a brutal 2014 cycle, having to fend off a primary challenge and Alison Lundergan Grimes, a well-funded Democratic candidate. Recent polls suggest McConnell is pulling away from Grimes and most political handicappers say the GOP is a heavy favorite to claim the Senate.

    McConnell’s idol is ‘the great compomiser” – if he does that we’re screwed.
    The compromises all go left. I say NO Compromising – the left didn’t do any.
    The republicans need to UNWIND all this mess. but if you notice – NOT ONE OF THEM is talking about Repeal of Obamacare. – they want to talk about stopping exec. order amanesty – all while THEY were teh ones that left the border open for two decades…. we’ll see but stay on them AFTER they win control – hold their feet to the fire – make them do what is right. make them govern according to the will of the people. They exists because of teh consent of the governed.

      How the hell do the majority leaders get picked? Is it how the founders set it up? Sounds like a Rino will be in charge of both houses of congress now. Even after a landslide of votes to limit these fat cats and their unlawful unlimited big gov tyranny. How did this guy vote on obamacare?

    Does anyone remember that he would not support conservatives, yet he has been portrayed as one in this general election. He is a career senator with no intention of bucking the system in charge now!

    So far Mitch McConnell’s vows have been meaningless.
