    I can't imagine a better Senate candidate - or a better Senator until 2015 and beyond!

    He didn't have to stand up on FISA, but he did. That works for me.

    •  What's great about Jeff (2+ / 0-)

      is that no matter if it's unpopular, he won't compromise his values for political expediency. For instance, when he worked as a national security analyst for the Pentagon and then the CBO, he was put off by the secretive war spending by the Reagan Administration. He ended up leaving the Defense Dept. and spoke out against Reagan's war spending in an op-ed back in the 80's. That takes character and guts.
