    And I don't think any of us Kossacks are really in a position to really give enough facts because we aren't in the U.S. Senate.  The Democrats in the U.S. Senate most likely have a lot of stress to deal with, as well as keeping everyone in order given the GOP House is pretty much preventing anything productive from happening.

    I really don't think it matters whether Dick Durbin has been in years in the U.S. Senate.  John Kerry was in the U.S. Senate from 1985 to earlier this year when he was confirmed by the U.S. Senate to become SoS.  Durbin has been around long enough to know the B.S. the Republican Party has been pulling and continues to pull given the gridlock in Washington.  We weren't being anti-Durbin years ago.  Why all of a sudden are we now?

    I don't think this is quite as simple as the diary states.
