Jim Geraghty of National Review and Greg Corombos of Radio America unveil their choices in three more categories for Three Martini Lunch awards for 2017. They begin on a somber note by honoring figures they were sorry to see pass away in 2017. Jim chooses a peacemaker on the international stage and Greg highlights a joyful and faithful conservative in Washington. They also reveal their choices for rising political star, with both selections coming from the U.S. Senate. And they discuss the political characters who exited the political stage and are likely to soon be forgotten.

    Edward William Brooke III (R-Mass.) in 1966 became the first African American popularly elected to the United States Senate (1967 to 1979).

    He was a “Liberal Republican”, a breed made up of liberals who couldn’t stomach being in the party of segregation.
