SocraticGadfly: A kinder, gentler, John Cornyn?

A kinder, gentler, John Cornyn?

He actually reacted quite favorably to Obama chief of staff Rahm Emanuel's visit to Republican House and Senate leaders today.

It remains to be seen how long this lasts, but, there's several factors contributing to this.

1. No more Bush.
2. Chairing the NSRC, Cornyn has read the election tea leaves enough to know he can't be too in-your-face in recruiting Senate candidates for 2010.
3. Maybe with no Bush, Big John feels he has less need to pander to nutbar elements of the GOP.
