Trent Lott won his way back into the Senate Republican leadership thanks to a key credential: his role as a critic of President George W. Bush.Ever read a news article and ask,
In the four years since he was forced to resign as majority leader after making a racially insensitive comment, Lott, 65, has assailed the Bush administration for its handling of the war in Iraq and the aftermath of Hurricane Katrina and voted for legislation opposed by Bush, including a measure to allow new federal funding for stem-cell research.
Senate Republicans yesterday chose Mitch McConnell of Kentucky, 64, to be minority leader and elected Lott to the No. 2 position of whip. Many lawmakers said Lott's record of defiance would prove an asset for the party, which lost control of both chambers of Congress in the Nov. 7 midterm elections, in part because of public disaffection with Bush.
