Best Orators: Senators Robert Byrd of West Virginia and Edward Kennedy of Massachusetts.
Most Pragmatic: Senator Arlen Spector of Pennsylvania.
Sometimes I say Senator Warner of Virginia is also a good orator, but I'm just being nice. He does seem to be the best Republican orator, but he's simply not in the same league. Senator Frank Lautenberg of New Jersey is as good, for instance.
Bunning is still the most braindead, and there are a half-dozen other useless Republicans (especially Kay Bailey Hutchinson), but there are a couple Democrats who irk me as being not particularly useful.
