NPR's Brian Naylor reports on Trent Lott's announcement yesterday that he would not be majority leader of the Senate when Congress convenes in the new year. The statement came after a two-week controversy over the Senator's remarks about the 1948 pro-segregation presidential campaign of Strom Thurmond.
