Lott Optimistic

Being leader of the U.S. Senate in 2003 will be better the second time around, according to Mississippi Republican Trent Lott. He made that comparison based on the fact that a Democrat was president then.

"Last time, I was sometimes criticized because of who did I have to work with?" said Lott. "The President of the United States was Bill Clinton. And that made the job doubly hard. This time, I'm going to have a President that I'm in agreement with almost all the time."

Lott said that relationship will be good for Mississippi and good for the country.
