    That isn't my point.  MJD's view on it is different based on her experiences in FL.  I personally do not think there is a simple and necessarily superior answer as to his participation - or even to participation by Dems overall.  But my point is that MJD, in no way, is a "Repuke in Dim's clothing" because of her view and to state such is stupid.

    As to Grayson, I like him but I also feel that he cam be spun up rather easily and that made him less effective.  And it appears that it wasn't well suited to his constituents either.  To me there is a fine line between being "a bulldog" and being unhinged.  No matter how good your message is or how correct you are, once you cross that line you lose credibility.  Now I may be wrong, but my sense of hm is that his return to the House was due in part to his dialing back his previous methods.  It seems to have worked and is continuing to work for him.

      but his putting himself forward now scares me. And yes, his present major family problems and simultaneously advertising his wanting to dive into this extra conflict worries me.  He could be a loose cannon looking for an outlet.

      It seems to me that any witness in this political witch hunt can state, and state repeatedly, that the Republican House of Representatives refused the "begged for" funding for those Middle Eastern embassies. (let alone an outpost)
