THE WIRED MAJORITY LEADER: Bill Frist was unanimously elected Senate Majority Leader on a conference call yesterday. An interesting tidbit from the AP: this "was the first time a Senate party leader had been elected by lawmakers dispersed throughout the country, said Senate historian Richard Baker. Senate leadership elections are normally done by secret ballot in a Capitol meeting room."

A Senate Majority Leader who understands nanotech issues, elected by conference call to a post vacated through a blog campaign. Quite a relief from the '48-nostalgia.
