  •  OK. Do you have two Republican Senators? (9+ / 0-)

    "As usual the fix is in." I remember, just very faintly you understand, a viscious Republican campaigning against Senator-elect Warren.

    I faintly remember people working their butts off for canidates they BELIEVED IN.

    One vote may make a difference.

    Of course it makes a difference if there is even one more Senator.

    Your sig needs updating, too.

    2012-2016 President Obama, Vice President Biden, Senator Warren. For a LIFETIME, federal judges. Get the filibuster changed. Steamroll. http://www.whitehouse.gov/contact/submit-questions-and-comments

    •  actually (0+ / 0-)

      as the diary notes you might also remember the insiders working to oust everyone except warren from the primary.
      I really don't think that we have to be so scared of primary elections.

        Maybe you're just a purist when it come to primaries, but seriously?   Your version of events really doesn't square with what actually happened.

        •  we chose the best of the field (4+ / 0-)

          to represent us. and those who dropped out, whether they were encouraged to or not, did so because it was clear who would get the support they needed. it is much about feedback from local party committees as it is about analysis of who has the best chance.

          And, BTW remember the Brown/Warren pledge not to accept PAC money?

          Women are 51% of the population yet are represented in congress by barely 17%! Until our representation reflects the population, we risk sliding backwards .....
