      will have that vote.

      Bad point. Indeed, you actually MAKE Joan's point.

      Think about what Joe Lieberman will vote for.

      •  In the Lame Duck session, Lugar would have it. (0+ / 0-)

        Donnelly is better than Mourdock any day.  But he's going to disappoint a lot of Democrats.  Not only is he very conservative and a pro-lifer, but one of his biggest/closest pushers/advisers is Evan Buy who detests and resents President Obama.  Evan is a vindictive little man with no core principles...the absolute opposite of his father, Senator Birch Bayh.

        When I realized Evan has Donnelly in his pocket I wanted to throw up.  Of course, I voted for him; there was no question about the two choices we had.

          Evan Bayh before, as just a Congressman.  He may be able to get along without him as a Senator.  I don't want to prejudge Donnelly.

          •  Wise. Let's wait and see. I'd like to be surprised (0+ / 0-)

            Evan's been thick with Joe in this Senate race.  I don't expect his influence to diminish.
