  •  Let's see, Lieberman, Bayh, Lincoln, Ben Nelson (6+ / 0-)

    are gone. 112th Congress (2011-2013) Democrats, 51 seats + 2 Independents (Lieberman and Sanders). 113th Congress (2013-2015) Democrats, 53 seats, plus 2 Independents (King and Sanders).  Looks like a net gain of three to me, 2 Democrats and King for Lieberman. We have a better Senate today than two years ago, more Democrats and Better Democrats. Isn't this our game plan?

    •  We have the Tea Party to thank for that. (1+ / 0-)

      I'm not sure it's going to happen if they didn't gum up the works.

      Colorado has Senator Bennet who is about as corporatist as the Democrats come.  He wouldn't have been re-elected without the Tea Party upsetting the establishment choice.
