    But certainly better than whomever the GOP nominates.

    Leser evils remain less evil.

    With any luck, Kerrey'll be a thorn in the side of decent legislation for the next six years, as it's better than the alternative.

      I don't think Nelson would do that.

      I don't understand the Kerrey hate. Is he liberal? No. But he endorsed one of the five most liberal senators (at a time when Franken was still seen as a joke by 80% of this country), took on the NRA in an election year, he voted against DOMA, and was against banning flag burning. His social positions aren't conservative, his economic positions are.

      He voted for Gramm-Leach-Billey and according to wikipedia he said "The concerns that we will have a meltdown like 1929 are dramatically overblown". That to me is far more scary than his social values.

      BTW, Rachel Maddow showed his NRA ad. Gutsy ad in any state especially in Nebraska in an election year.
