Senator Michael Bennet (D-CO) lays it on the line:
He doesn’t care what his constituents want, he’s going to toe the Democrat line, even if it means he loses his job in 2010.
That said, I have to admire Sen. Bennet; at least he has the courage of his (party’s) convictions, and is willing to say so, with no ambiguity or equivocation. Asked a direct yes-or-no question, he simply answers “No Yes.” We could wish for that same simplicity from the rest of our elected officials.
Of course, it remains to be seen if he will actually vote the way he’s said, or whether his sense of self-preservation will kick in if his constituents really lay it on the line for him.
At least we’ll have video evidence of the hypocrisy if that happens.
