Kentucky Senator Rand Paul’s First Speech on Senate Floor on “Compromise”

leave a comment »

The WKMS News Room just received this notification from Senator Rand Paul’s office. He gave his first speech on the Senate floor today. The topic: Compromise.

Quite interesting to see his focus on Henry Clay “The Great Compromiser” juxtaposed to his cousin Cassius Clay who did no such thing.

Take 8 minutes of your day to see what your (if you live in Kentucky) Senator is saying about compromise, the legacy of Henry Clay and his plans for the U.S. Senate.

And Hey…. Why not comment too?
