Sen. Orrin Hatch talks to reporters ahead of a major trade vote May 12, 2015 in Washington, DC.

Senator Hatch got a slight whack with an eager reporter via iPhone, but took it like a champ. Senator Durbin looked, at times, a bit of a sour puss – lack of unity among Dems could have had him down. And, most entertaining of all, Senator Schumer had to interrupt the Dem-side of the weekly policy luncheon presser to move along Sen. Hatch still surrounded by reporters.
