U.S. Senator Mitch McConnell once famously said that the "single most important thing we want to achieve is for President Obama to be a one-term president." After Obama was re-elected, McConnnell doubled-down, doing everything in his power as Senate Minority Leader to undermine the President.
Because of this unpatriotic attitude of putting party and power before the best interests of the country, McConnell is widely regarded as the most unpopular politician in America.
But, that doesn't matter to Wisconsin's U.S. Senator, Ron Johnson. No, he's fighting to keep McConnell as the GOP's leader in the Senate:
While fellow Republican Senator Ted Cruz has refused to say whether he'd back McConnell as majority leader, Johnson will recommend to the caucus that the entire slate of party leaders be re-installed. "Based on the results of this election, let's try to not only find common ground with the other side but within our own party," he said. "This is a time to provide unity, and a leadership battle would not be good."
Somewhere, Tammy Wynette is smiling.
