    that Schumer is not our biggest problem - even if Schumer's record is at best 'spotty' [predatory lending used to be my legal focus a few years back, and at the time Schumer was the worst sort of hypocrite who talked good but voted against consumers]

    But you are completely right - there are so many who disappoint - Blanche Lincoln, even Tester - about whom we must just grit our collective teeth.

    And agree that there are better alternatives to focus on - I for one hope that Joe Sestak takes a run at Specter; have done a small bit of contributing when I had bucks, so get his Emails. A good example of a man with principles, even when I disagree..

    We will restore science to its rightful place....We will harness the sun and the winds and the soil .... All this we can do. And all this we will do.

      Supporting Sestak instead of Specter is a no brainer.

      •  Sestak is actually my rep too (1+ / 0-)

        He's a very genuine man. I feel better whenever I here him talk.

        •  Yeah, I'm in NJ but admire Sestak (0+ / 0-)

          enormously.

          And despite all best wishes personally to Specter for battling cancer, I have remnants of disgust with his particular history in mocking Anita Hill.

          I simply cannot forgive Spectre for that historic stomach churning atrocity, regardless of how useful some of his 'better' more recent votes have been.

          [there I go again, with history - just like excoriating Schumer's support of passing the lobbyist-drafted bankruptcy bill]

          We will restore science to its rightful place....We will harness the sun and the winds and the soil .... All this we can do. And all this we will do.
