Lott to Lugar: There is life after Congress

OVERHEARD: Former Senate Majority Leader Trent Lott (R-Miss.) telling Sen. Dick Lugar (R-Ind.), near the upper chamber’s Ohio Clock on Wednesday, “I’ll tell you what — life on the outside ain’t so bad!”

Lugar last week lost a primary challenge to Indiana’s state treasurer, Richard Mourdock. Lott is now a prominent lobbyist.
