While [Daschle] doesn't name names, he urges [Senate Majority Leader Harry] Reid and Senate Minority Leader Mitch McConnell to take a page out of his majority leadership days and build relationships. "You've got to keep trying," he wrote. "Sometimes it required me to walk over to the Republican leader's office, and visa versa. Those leadership offices are only about 50 yards apart, but it's one of the longest walks you'll ever take."While Reid is often seen at war with McConnell, Daschle bragged that his outreach worked. "I worked with three Republican leaders: Trent Lott, Bob Dole, and Bill Frist. And with each one, I would call it a good working relationship, in spite of our differences." In a demand pointed at Reid, he added: "For today's Senate majority party, working with the minority party is essential."
