  •  Why Vote Democrat? (none)
    If Democrats won't fight a nominee like this? I say this as an extremely loyal partisan.

    There is some point at which you have to convince your constituents that you stand for something. How many people will donate money to stop Roe from being overturned if they know Democrats lack the backbone to do anything about it? Fighting and losing reminds them that you're at least willing to fight.

    There is a point at which, if you fail to fight, you stand for nothing.

    So I would like to thank you Senator (and Senator Kerry and others) for being willing to stand up and fight. Even if this fails, I will be proud of my party for showing some guts and some integrity.

    Thanks.

    •  True-- And we will remember those who cave (none)
      I think that it is as important for us to remember those don't fight for us as those who do!  Three Cheers for Sen. Kennedy.  If Biden and others flake out on us....There will be hell to pay. It is not really just a matter of folks not getting democratic support (money and activist help) it is literally a question of us working activily AGAINST those who do not stand with us....That may not be politically expedient, but at some point the democratic Congressional delegations have to be purged of those who do not have the chops to stand up for the people when it matters most.
