  •  He was speaker of the Oregon House (4+ / 0-)

    so had legislative experience. However, he has really stepped forward. He must have just ignored the usual custom of freshmen being quiet.

    I was very proud that he stood by Reid when he announced his decision on filibustering.

    •  he hadn't even expected (5+ / 0-)

      to run for senate. he had never run for anything larger than a state house seat, but he woke up one day, and was reading the paper, and realized that no big names were going to challenge smith, so why not give it a shot? the accidental senator.

        I can't see Oregonians being talked out of him any time soon.

        Thanks!
