NICKLES CALLS FOR VOTE ON

NICKLES CALLS FOR VOTE ON LOTT: Sen. Don Nickles of Oklahoma, the outgoing GOP whip who nearly challenged Trent Lott for Senate leader in this fall, has called for new leadership elections. Perhaps finally seeing the handwriting on the wall, Lott told Newsweek that “My term runs through 2006. I intend to serve it, whatever happens.”

I hope something happens.
