  •  Steve I disagree... would YOU have walked into a (4+ / 0-)

    warzone, knowing you would become the MAIN TARGET once you said your peace?   Stupak is going to be the target so some of the ugliest attacks, from the right. we have seen so far...  hopefully they will all be VERBAL in nature.  

    Last night, as he DEFENDED his yes vote and the bill in general he was called BABY KILLER....  that wont be the last time he hears that... it has got to have hurt him to the quick and its going to get much uglier, for him.

    anyone willing to do that deserves a little respect.

      I think he provided a huge and important diversion while Pelosi whipped everyone else.  The Executive Order gambit was a masterstroke of tactical suprise that basically froze all GOP efforts up until the very day of the vote, with them hoping that Supak and his bloc would hold out and kill the bill.

      Battles unfold in unexpected ways.....
