Pryor an 'up-and-comer'

Time magazine includes U.S. Sen. Mark Pryor among five Senate "up-and-comers' it names in its Apr. 24 issue. (The others are Sens. Hillary Clinton, Lindsey Graham, Barack Obama, and John Sununu.)

The article consists of a single paragraph for each senator. Here is Pryor's:

The scion of a popular Democratic Arkansas political family, Pryor, 43, made his mark in 2005, supplanting old-timers like Joe Lieberman and Robert Byrd to take a leading role in the centrist "Gang of 14" that defused the crisis over judicial filibusters. He impressed Senate watchers by his ability to keep Democratic leader Harry Reid fully informed and happy at the same time. Watch for Pryor, who voted with President Bush 58% of the time in 2005, to emerge as a key swing vote and voice for Third Way Democrats.
