    Surely, the appointment wouldn't have been made without consulting POTUS about a vacant senate seat in his home state.

    If so, he probably owes fealty to the WH and, as long as Obama's in office, will vote according to his wishes.

    Congrats to Hawaii and the state Dem Party, most everyone seems to have a good opinion of Schatz!

    Democratic Leaders must be very clear they stand with the working class of our country. Democrats must hold the line in demanding that deficit reduction is done fairly -- not on the backs of the elderly, the sick, children and the poor.
