Even after several minutes of debating Frist, “Byrd did not let up. Majority Whip [Mitch] McConnell (R-KY) took the floor and interjected that having votes on nominees follows an important precedent. ‘I’ll be glad to take you on both,’ Byrd said, and continued his verbal assault. Each time Frist tried to sum up, Byrd added another comment. Finally, a smiling Frist walked over to Byrd, shook his hand, and backed off the floor.” (CongressDaily, sub. req’d)
