    almost exactly same thing I was thinking when I posted a comment referencing something Glenn Greenwald wrote on another diary yesterday.  Here is your comment:

    Last week's Amash-Conyers vote was, for House Dem "leadership," ultimately a question of knee-jerk party loyalty.  I'm not sure where this issue will go in the future.  I do know that an uneasy coalition of independent-minded Dems and libertarian Goopers will be the only way to pass legislation.  I know even more that actually enforcing changes to current methods will be a challenge regardless of what Congress does.
    My comment with the Greenwald referenced quote is in its entirity here.  But here is a part of it that shows we were thinking along the same lines.
    Will this uneasy coalition work across the board?  Absolutely not. But what it does show us citizens is that we the people need to find areas of non-partisan common ground upon which we can push our elected officials to do better or we all are going to go down together.
    I would say great minds, but I do not want to insult you RFK.  ;)
