Senate Majority Leader Mitch McConnell, R-Ky., may be tempted by the Senate's opportunity to bar Donald Trump from running for president again. Above, McConnell at the Capitol on Dec. 15.

The day before the Capitol Hill riot, Jonathan Last of the Bulwark wrote a dark valediction for Sen. Mitch McConnell's attempts to "manage, contain and outlast Donald Trump."

As a master of institutional power, McConnell probably believed that he had the upper hand over President Donald Trump, because only institutional power can actually turn political passions into law.

But what if, Last wrote, your voters "don't really care about policy outcomes anymore?"
