    Couldn't get through on Feinstein's phone, so I just sent through her e-mail comment system

    As one of your constituents, I am outraged that you were quoted as supporting Harry Reid's "compromise" that will allow the Republican minority in the Senate to go right on obstructing all action there!.  Many people worked very hard to elect a Democratic Senate to adopt badly-needed legislation: for example, on climate change.  For Reid to allow unscrupulous demagogues like Jim DeMint to continue blocking legislation is a betrayal.  Certainly, the Republicans won't allow "minority rights" to stop them from running roughshod over Democrats if they are the majority -- we already saw that in their threats of the "nuclear option".  We need Democrats who will stand up for themselves and their party, and we especially need one as Majority Leader.  Reid has proven himself unwilling to stand up for a functioning Senate, and we need a new Majority Leader. I urge you to vote for anybody-but-Reid as Majority Leader -- preferably, a real Democrat like Jeff Merkley, Tom Harkin, or Tom Udall.

    "My country, right or wrong; if right, to be kept right; and if wrong, to be set right" -- Sen. (and Major General) Carl Schurz, 1872
