22. He just might! The House is several hudred rabidly ardent legislators, and
the 'cooling saucer' of the Senate is a hundred guys (generically speaking) who are very collegial. Fewer elections to deal with, and the chance to move in more rarified air. And also, since about a quarter of the Senate that is up for reelection or will have a vacant seat is GOP, he probably won't be the MOST junior kid on the team, coming from the House. He'd be senior to, say, Senator Franken!

He could probably find himself a seat on a nice, high profile committee or two without any trouble. As I said elsewhere, the Party OWES him for the great gains of the last election cycle. Now's the time for him to jump, if he gets the shot.
