    That this position went to Bennet, especially after Patty Murray did such a good job.  I know she didn't want to do it again, but you would think this position would go to someone more liberal than Bennet.  

    That being said, Blue Dogs are probably not going to work in 2014.  We need candidates who are liberal in their thinking and in the votes they'll make.  Social issues will be at the forefront, in the 2013 and 2014 elections and we need candidates that will echo these issues the same way a majority of the voters do.

        As a 1st term Senator and a Blue Dog.  There were a lot of other Senators that could have been given this position, Kirstin Gillibrand, Sherrod Brown, and others like them come to mind but Bennet wouldn't and shouldn't have been on Reid's list.

        •  I'm amazed at the guy. (0+ / 0-)

          He's very much like Hickenlooper--somehow beyond blessed [for lack of a better word] to have everything handed to him.  The waters just part ways for these two.

          Not that there is anything wrong with that--I just marvel at these types of people.
