    and county levels. There are a lot of places where people vote differently among them. And a lot of people vote for president and maybe congress and then don't vote for much else.

    ...better the occasional faults of a government that lives in a spirit of charity, than the consistent omissions of a government frozen in the ice of its own indifference. -FDR, 1936

    •  True, which is why I'm in favor of a Gov Matheson (3+ / 0-)

      Because he'd probably be relatively great on the local issues; on national issues he has to vote in a way I'm uncomfortable with (I would accept a Tim Kaine or a Pryor type as Congressman though. Or my County Mayor, who matched or exceeded most of Matheson's numbers in Salt Lake County in 2012).

      And while Matheson already has a lot of advantages that help him statewide, if he's in a position to become Governor, it seems reasonable to think that the national climate is good enough for Dems that they won't need him specifically in Congress. So it's a fair trade.
