WSJ Interviews Leader McConnell

In a piece entitled "No-Worries Mitch" in today's issue, the Wall Street Journal reports on its interview yesterday with Senate Majority Leader McConnell. When asked about how yesterday evening went (presumably the WSJ had Ted Cruz on its mind), the Leader wouldn't take the bait: "Oh, I'll leave that for others to judge." Nor would McConnell step on Trump's message, while at the same time reminding us of what the party is about and will remain: "I think the right of center will constantly renew as some leave and others come on. I'm not worried about that. We're not going to change what the Republican Party is. It's America's right-of-center part, it's the private sector party."  The Democrats  "are the government party, and the left-of-center party. That ain't gonna change."
