  •  Elected Dems on dKos (4.00)
    Kerry is the latest. Sen. Kennedy posted some months go. We also have been visited by:
    • Sen. Boxer
    • Rep. Conyers
    • Sen. Feingold
    • Rep. McDermott
    • Sen. Obama
    • Rep. Pelosi
    • Rep. Slaughter

    I'm sure I am forgetting a few.
    •  Obama doesn't count (1.66)
      and I mean that in more ways than one.

      If it talks like an R, VOTES like an R, it is an R - even if it has a D after its name.

        •  Thank you pursewarden (none)
          If I'm around when the censors troll rate one of your opinions because they don't agree, I'll pay back the favor.  Long live the first amendment.

          •  I don't troll rate for disagreement (3.20)
            I do troll rate for off-topic, snotty comments that make no attempt whatsoever to justify a position.
            •  Me, too. (none)
              It isn't a position, it is an opinion.  MINE.  Don't be so snotty.

              If it talks like an R, VOTES like an R, it is an R - even if it has a D after its name.

            •  I rated the comment a "1" (none)
              because I don't think it was a troll, but it certainly was "unproductive" to the discussion, imo, and uncalled for.  

              I don't downrate posts because I disagree with them, ever, (in fact, I often chide against those who do), but your comment about
              Sen. Obama was borderline drive-by troll shot.   If you hadn't made other thoughtful posts in this diary discussion, I would've zero rated it as a troll drive-by flip off.

              And I couldn't disagree more with your comment, either, btw.

      •  I'm curious (none)
        as to why you would say that about Senator Obama?  I believe that while he is still green, and he would be the first to say that he is, there will be great things to come from this man.  If you haven't, read his commencement speech from Knox College, here.
        The man is eloquent, honest, and on target.  I don't think he's been given enough time to be written off.  He's a junior senator who is just getting his feet wet. Lighten up on the good Senator from Illinois.
