    congress critter. He's very quiet but has been in a place I'm very comfortable with on most every issue I've followed. And I don't consider myself a mushy liberal. So it makes me wonder. I'm not saying I haven't missed something.

    I really must find a good sig line!

      to his constituents (I'm down here in the 11th) and does just incredible work for other Dems. He and some of his staff actually showed up the weekend before the election to stomp for us.

      In general Quigley has been liberal to progressive on social issues and the wars, but moderate conservative to conservative on economic issues.  

      Given the current economic decline that even middle class people face, progressives need to be progressives on economic issues such as protect social security and medicare, progressive income tax, state development banks, reinstate the Glass Steagal act and such.
