  •  Willing to take a pass on Begich (3+ / 0-)

    only because he is on our side on so many other issues like Social Security for one.  And this is coming from someone who lives 10 minutes from Newtown.  Overall Begich is on our side more often that not, by a wide margin.  He's a good senator from a very libertarian state and I know I'm not going to agree with him on everything buy more often that not I will agree with him.

    Pryor OTOH is one of the Conservadems who has consistently undermined the Dem party at several opportunities, DOMA for example.  He'll compromise the principles of the party if it'll get him elected.  I would much rather sacrifice his seat and use the money wasted there on getting a more progressive Dem elected elsewhere who will likely back filibuster reform in 2015.  Like in say Maine where Collins is somewhat popular but susceptible to a primary on the right.  If she was Lugared, the Dems would very likely steal that seat.  I would be working on some serious ratfucking in Maine to make that happen rather than waste my time on Pryor.
