    ... about some of the names who were against reform.

    He didn't lambast and beat the hell out of the people who might be obstructing reform.

    No, he went after Merkley, who dared mention the names of some of the Senators who were against his reform package.

    Just like President Obama turned Clinton loose on the more progressive in the Dem Congress when health care reform was being debated, instead of going after the Lieberman's and Baucuses.

    This is how the Democratic Party works, from President Obama, to Harry Reid, to Nancy Pelosi.

    Any questions?

      So The Democratic Party, Barack Obama, Harry Reid, and Nancy Pelosi (and Bill Clinton since you named him too) .. are the people we are supposed to OPPOSE and or call for resignations.  Got it.  ..although I will admit that calling for Patrick Leahy's resignation because he told local press in Vermont that he wouldn't support Merkley's bill is going to feel really weird.  Just sayin'....

      So aside from Saint Merkley and all 4 years of his DC experience, who else should we Democrats Rick-Aucoin's-Party-Members be supporting?

      (Please please say Hillary Clinton or else I need to change a lot of my 2016 plans)
