?Wild? Guess?

     Byrd is stepping down from the most powerful committee in the Senate.  Byrd, a Klansman decades ago, and publicly apologetic for it, is voluntarily giving up power?

     I am reminded of Trent Lott losing his leadership post, for praising Strom Thurmond's 1948 Dixiecrat (segregationist) campaign for President.

     Name someone who voluntarily gave up the #1 spot.  Maybe this had something to do with Obama's victory?
