  •  go through the list (4+ / 0-)

    New   vs Old  -  judgment

    Warren v Brown -  more progressive

    King v Snowe  -  probably little change

    Donnelly v Lugar  -  somewhat more progressive

    Baldwin v Kohl  - somewhat more progressive

    Kaine v Webb  - mixed bag, probably a bit more progressive

    Hirono v Akaka - more progressive on a number of issues

    Heinrich v Bingaman  - probably a wash

    Heitkamp v Conrad - somewhat more progressive

    I do not see a single case where a new Dem senator is LESS progressive than the person being replaced

    •  I agree and hopefuly in the case of King, he is (0+ / 0-)

      with the Democrats, caucus with them and supports Leader Reid. Whereas, Yes Snowe voted with Democrats on some issues but in the end, supported McConnnell and Republicans for the most part.

      I think Kaine might be a wee more progressive than Webb, as former head of the DNC and close friend of the President, that helps us too.
