Lamar Alexander on getting betrayed in last month's Senate GOP whip race, which he lost to Trent Lott: "I wrote 27 thank you letters for 24 votes."

Meanwhile, in this week's TNR, Eve Fairbanks shares some great details from inside the ballot room, complete with one senator's unlikely Julius Caesar reference, and explains Lott's strange fall and rise.
