Senate Unveils Trent Lott Portrait
ASHINGTON Former Senate Majority Leader Trent Lott, R-Miss., did what few politicians could accomplish yesterday bring together former President Bill Clinton, former House Speaker Newt Gingrich, R-Ga., and current Democratic and Republican Senate leaders in a bipartisan show of force for the most genteel of occasions the unveiling of Lott' portrait in the U.S. Capitol' ornate old Senate chamber.

A buoyant Lott joked "all my friends are referring to it as my hanging," just before the event, which was a family reunion for the Lott family, his current and past Senate and House colleagues and Lotts staff over his 35 years of public life, including one-time staffers Sen. Roger Wicker, R-Miss., and former Rep. Chip Pickering, R-Miss.

All eyes, however, were on the three who in the late 1990s were the most powerful figures in the country -- the president, the speaker of the House and the Senate majority leader.

Gingrich said that "the three of us" - he and Clinton and Lott "came out of nowhere and couldn't believe it when we got here and were confused by the experience."

Clinton, who was introduced by Gingrich, was the big scene-stealer, saying, "I'm still wondering what I'm doing here.

10. It's been four years and, as far as I know,
that house still hasn't been rebuilt. I guess he and his wife are living exclusively in Washington now.
