2. She ripped some serious Repug Ass there. I love to see a true Democratic Senator that

 

truly cares about the people, and this lady does.

3. Would you sacrifice Stabenow or Levin?

Maybe she should move to Indiana first.

4. That occurred to me after I posted. But if there's ever an opening, this is the one who should run.

She is AWESOME!

12. Levin's term is up in 2 years - he'll be 80 at the time, so he might retire.

Then again, there's lots of talk of her running in for Governor or Attorney General.

9. I have a Tbagger brother-in-law in Michigan and he is probably salivating over this

 

vote by the Repugs to pass Right to Work legislation.

10. Thank you! Unfortunately the F***ing Repugs passed the Right to Work by a vote of;

 

58-52 House and

22-16 Senate to pass these crappy legislation.

11. I agree. Hope that she gets to the national level fast. Our bench is deep, but needs work in

red states.
