So Much For “I’m Just Voting My District”…

November 20th, 2009at 07:14am Posted by Eli

Okay, so it’s technically only the Democratic primary.  But if the excuse the Blue Dogs and ConservaDems offer up for voting against meaningful healthcare reform is that they have to do it to hold onto their seats, some primary losses sure would make that excuse look foolish (and also, good riddance).

I don’t have much of an expectation that conservative Democrats will vote for healthcare reform (or financial reform, or climate change reform, or…) out of conscience or a desire to do the right thing, but if they do it out of fear, I can live with that.  Although I’d still rather see them gone, even if it means they’re replaced by real Republicans instead of real Democrats.  Just so long as the Democrats have enough members left to hold onto their majorities so we don’t have to put up with frivolous investigations and impeachment attempts every five minutes.
