    I'd take Joe Lieberman over that guy. Sure, Bean isn't the best Democrat but she never had a district that could support a liberal so you have to be pragmatic and take what you can get. Otherwise people like myself would run for office in places like North Carolina, but the sad truth is that liberalism is unelectable many places.

    However, I would never tell you you have to settle to give money to candidates like her. There were plenty of electable liberals who were worth donating to in swing districts like Cheri Bustos, so why waste your dollars on Bean?
