In just two months, Sen. Ted Cruz (R-TX) "has made his presence felt in an institution where new arrivals are usually not heard from for months, if not years," the New York Times reports.

"Besides suggesting that Mr. Hagel might have received compensation from foreign enemies, he has tangled with the mayor of Chicago, challenged the Senate's third-ranking Democrat on national television, voted against virtually everything before him -- including the confirmation of John Kerry as secretary of state -- and raised the hackles of colleagues from both parties."
