a timely lesson in party discipline

From CNN's review of Bill Frist's new book:

Frist writes that Lott demonstrated to him that he was the "ultimate team player" after the Mississippi senator cast the crucial 60th vote needed to ensure a Medicare bill passed — even though Lott personally opposed the legislation. other words, Lott didn't just set aside his personal views to vote on cloture -- he voted with the party on the bill itself.

Maybe guys like Ben Nelson should be reading Frist's book.
