    I completely agree that Cuomo is a disaster (except for gay rights).

    Franken, OTOH, gets close to a perfect progressive score on just about ever issue.

      I'm upset about these votes, but I'm not about to throw Baby Al out with the bathwater.

      If we have a problem with some of Franken's votes, we should get in touch with him and explain why we're upset. That's the best way to get different results next time. This diary is not productive, IMO.

      "The only thing we have to fear is fear itself."........ "The test of our progress is not whether we add more to the abundance of those who have much; it is whether we provide enough for those who have too little." (yeah, same guy.)

        on the IP vote.  Her response was thoughtful, if not ideal. Then, at the meetup, I (and others) got to talk with her campaign director. I don't know if it will make a difference, but I'm not throwing baby Kirsten out with the bathwater either
