Capitol Lens: Watching From the Wings

Tom Williams/CQ Roll Call

What this photo from Tuesday tells me is that Sen. Charles Schumer walked around the corner, saw Sen. Lamar Alexander talking to reporters and froze. Alexander had just announced on the floor that he would be resigning as Republican Conference chairman, and he had stepped out to take reporters’ questions. Both men are conference leaders for their respective parties, and Schumer is just completely frozen — like the statues beside him — absorbing the news.
