In the seven years, I have been writing this column for The Hill, I have had a year-end tradition of recognizing the member of Congress who, for better or worse, made the biggest impact on national politics in the thepreceding year.
For 2017, the award goes to Arizona’s two Republican senators, Jeff Flake and John McCain.
Given the deep partisan divide in the country, you might be thinking: Why is a Democrat honoring two conservative Republican senators?
Well, I never shut my eyes to masterful political achievements by Republicans. I don’t think governing should be reduced to partisan sport.
