  •  Well, they won't beat Cooper (0+ / 0-)

    His district is too blue.  But that fits for many other blue dogs (I've noticed I keep forgetting to capitalize the name, but I'm thinking it fits.  They don't deserve proper capitalization!), such as Bobby Bright, Jim Marshall, Parker Griffin, Jason Altmire, Walt Minnick, etc.

    •  Yeah, like Minnick... (0+ / 0-)

      I'd very much like to see a poll done in ID-01 to see what Minnick's constituents think about the public option.

      And before people say it'd be like Montana, I'm not so sure.  Remember, Obama almost won Montana, losing only 49%-47% there.  He was crushed in ID-01, 62%-36%.

    •  They beat Cooper once already. (0+ / 0-)

      He thought killing Clinton's health care reform was soooo cool he ran for Senate and got trounced.  He came back into House by being opportunist in adjacent Congressional district. He couldn't get re-elected in his own district because his obstructionist behavior had turned it red.

      He's back again, like a Democratic zombie, eating the living, doing his best to turn even solid Democratic districts blue while pushing his anti-American viewpoints.
