Just a few weeks ago, Sen. Barbara Mikulski, a Democrat, wrote a glowing piece in Politico about former Sen. Nancy Kassebaum

of Kansas, a Republican.

The streak continues today with a piece from Sen.

Susan Collins of Maine, a Republican, about Sen. Claire McCaskill

of Missouri, a Democrat.

“Sen. McCaskill understands that no one party holds a monopoly on good ideas,” Collins writes. “It has been a pleasure to work with her, across the aisle, on many issues.”

The whole thing is here.
