  •  And wouldn't it be something if Kerrey joined (6+ / 0-)

    Donnelly in the senate. Both effective Blue Dogs, but a vast improvemtnt on the two GOPers, and votes for an effective Democratic majority (perhaps even after the 2014 election).

      but it's easy to forget that if these guys simply vote with us 10 percent of the time and at least consider voting with us other times, it'll be an improvement over what we have now.

    •  Kerrey was fairly liberal (3+ / 0-)

      In his first Senate stint in the Senate Kerrey's record was far from centrist.  He voted fairly liberal and was well left of Ben Nelson's record.  I suspect he'd move more to the center if elected again, but would probably still be an upgrade from Nelson.
