  •  I would venture to guess that the bill (0+ / 0-)

    is popular in the Boulder county part of the district, but probably not anywhere else. Or maybe it is popular in the Fort Collins area, but radioactive in Greeley and the rest of the district.

    •  Again, true (0+ / 0-)

       But it's that way for a lot of people in congress. I don't question that much of the district is very conservative ( not Colorado Springs conservative, but rural Palin country ), but, again, I don't see how a 'no' vote would do her any favors. The wingers in those areas would never vote for her; never. So, you may as well satisfy whatever base you have, and hope for the best.
       I appreciate that she changed her vote. I will vote for her. But if she voted 'no' purely out of re-election concerns, I'd have zero respect.
