Update & a correction... Somewhere down there I suggested that the vote for Senate majority leader was yet to come. But it's already happened, as this Monday Post story notes:

Because Lott has already been elected majority leader, Nickles would need to get five Republican senators to sign a letter to force a meeting -- possibly not until Jan. 8, the day after the Senate reconvenes -- to discuss a new leadership election. Alternatively, Sen. Rick Santorum (Pa.), as chairman of the Republican Conference, could simply call a meeting, which could be free-wheeling and unpredictable because there are no concrete rules guiding the overthrow of a party leader.

And it might not be very nice:

Lott will not go down without a fight, though. His allies were examining Nickles's voting record to try to show that it smacks of intolerance on issues important to African Americans
