At first glance that headline seems to imply he spent the evening like millions of other Americans, commenting on whatever party or event they were enjoying. But in this case, Sen. Murphy was making a point:

And it was a lonnnnng list.

As the senator says: "My point? The New Year's resolution of every Congressman and Senator should be to make sure 2016 is different."
Let's all hope!
