    i think some of the criticism of conservative democrats doesn't fully account for the states they represent, but that's no excuse to pick fights with leadership and make it harder for those other senators representing red states to be democrats.  Every time one of those might be tempted to stick their necks out, Ben Nelson was there to chop the heads off.
