Minnesota Sen. Amy Klobuchar, a Democrat, earned some time in the spotlight recently for her role in helping bring to an end the federal government shutdown. She is part of the Group of 14, a centrist coalition in the U.S. Senate. It put together a deal to restart the government, raise the debt ceiling and commit to future negotiations about longstanding fiscal issues, such as the nation's debt, its annual deficit and the long-term liabilities facing programs such as Social Security and Medicare.
