'Young bucks' and 'old guard' during Paul filibuster — which side are you on?

“Young bucks” at the filibuster

From Washington Times report: “Late in the evening Republican National Committee Chairman Reince Priebus even issued an all-hands alert for help: ‘Attention all Republican US Senators -> Please go to the floor and help out.’ … In addition to Mr. Cruz and Mr. Lee, others who showed up and spoke included Sens. Marco Rubio of Florida, John Cornyn of Texas, John Barrasso of Wyoming, Jerry Moran of Kansas, Saxby Chambliss of Georgia, Pat Toomey of Pennsylvania, Ron Johnson of Wisconsin, Tim Scott of South Carolina, Jeff Flake of Arizona and Mitch McConnell, the GOP floor leader, who made a late-night appearance to congratulate his fellow Kentuckian.”

“Old school” at the Obama dinner

From The Hill’s report: "GOP senators say no new policy ground was broken as both sides held fast to their battle-tested positions on taxes and spending, but the meeting helped thaw frosty relations and improve the prospects of a deal eventually. 'I think really what he is trying to do is start a discussion and kind of break the ice and that was appreciated,' said Sen. Mike Johanns (Neb.) … Sens. Kelly Ayotte (N.H.), Richard Burr (N.C.), Saxby Chambliss (Ga.), Dan Coats (Ind.), Tom Coburn (Okla.), Bob Corker (Tenn.), Lindsey Graham (S.C.), John Hoeven (N.D.), Ron Johnson (Wis.), John McCain (Ariz.) and Pat Toomey (Pa.) also sat down with Obama.”
