      I'm not defending Heitkamp as I clearly stated in my piece.  I'm just saying that Bill Daley is in no place to complain that she betrayed HIM.  He is not a North Dakota voter:  he has a corporate Democrat who gave money to her campaign.

        a so-called Democrat--who accepted campaign funds from across the country--to vote with the party when it comes to allowing debate?

        I say he has that right.

        Because even if Heitkamp counted every single nose in her state and decided they wanted her to vote against Manchin-Toomey--she should have supported debating the bill and then voted against the bill itself.

        We would hate seeing her do it, but we would understand.

        Instead, she tossed a big steak to the False Filibuster Beast.
