    ... are on the Steering and Outreach committee but I called both of them regardless.

    For Merkley, the best I could manage was calling his campaign office in Portland.  The volunteer sounded into it although she agreed when I said there probably wasn't a whole lot he could do considering he hadn't been sworn in yet.

    The Wyden aide was pretty neutral - I told her I was a constituent in Portland and that I wanted the Senator to pressure his colleagues on the committee to strip Lieberman of his committee chair and ideally kick him out of the caucus as well.  She said she'd "let him know" which is the non-response I almost always get from aides.

    Unrelated, but being able to call two senators and not just one feels pretty good.  Glad that Gordon Smith got retired.
