    That Kerrey took positions on the war(s) and austerity long before he was under any electoral pressure to do so... although he may have calculated correctly that such positions would grant him greater cachet within the Village.

    Another pearl of wisdom:

    Kerrey voted for the Gramm-Leach-Bliley Act which repealed the Glass–Steagall Act in 1999, defending his position against opposition by stating, "The concerns that we will have a meltdown like 1929 are dramatically overblown."

    Your point about half of senate Dems is, alas, well taken.
