Senators in Marriage of Convenience

The New York Times notes the iciness between Senate Majority Leader Mitch McConnell (R-KY) and Sen. Rand Paul (R-KY) "has been replaced by a powerful force in politics: expedience."

"Mr. McConnell, 71, the embodiment of Washington establishment, and Mr. Paul, 50, a grass-roots insurgent who harbors a brightly burning presidential ambition for 2016, have formed an odd-couple, scratch-my-back alliance that stretches from Washington to Louisville. Some weeks, it can even seem that the balance of power has shifted between Kentucky's junior and senior senators."
