(Yes, I know it's already been blogged, but I'll take another shot a the rec list - Z)

Colorado's freshman Senator, Michael Bennet, seems to have picked up on some things that some of our more conflicted and less astute senators have not: a thorough revamping of how we deliver health care and a thorough thrashing of the unethical, profit-driven Health Care Denial™ industry is critical now, not just for the immediate health of all our citizens, but also for the long-term health of our economy and the ability of millions of businesses to afford to stay in business.

And the freshman Senator from Colorado, quite possibly with a little pressure from a primary challenger, is willing to lose his job to do the right thing:

Now if Blanche Lincoln and Mary Landrieux and Joe Lieberman, especially Joe "The Sanctimonious Liar" Lieberman, would get their heads out of their asses we could get on to fixing this chronic problem....once and for all.

More Tagging tips:

A tag is a way to search for this diary. If someone is searching for "Barack Obama," is this a diary they'd be trying to find?

Use a person's full name, without any title. Senator Obama may become President Obama, and Michelle Obama might run for office.

If your diary covers an election or elected official, use election tags, which are generally the state abbreviation followed by the office. CA-01 is the first district House seat. CA-Sen covers both senate races. NY-GOV covers the New York governor's race.

Tags do not compound: that is, "education reform" is a completely different tag from "education". A tag like "reform" alone is probably not meaningful.

Consider if one or more of these tags fits your diary: Civil Rights, Community, Congress, Culture, Economy, Education, Elections, Energy, Environment, Health Care, International, Labor, Law, Media, Meta, National Security, Science, Transportation, or White House. If your diary is specific to a state, consider adding the state (California, Texas, etc). Keep in mind, though, that there are many wonderful and important diaries that don't fit in any of these tags. Don't worry if yours doesn't.
