Mansfield made a huge impact through a different road: by viewing the role of leader as serving others, Mitch McConnell, Senate Minority Leader, via Politico.

He knew when to go to battle, and when to coordinate with his counterpart Everett Dirksen.

In short, he knew how to work the Senate, Mitch McConnell, Senate Minority Leader, via Politico.

If you’ve read [McConnell’s] book, ‘The Long Game,’ this is something he’s wanted to do his whole life.
