14. My congressman, Earl Blumenauer, explained his vote...
...on Thom Hartmann's program this morning. He thought they were both good candidates, but that Murtha was the far more conservative of the two, and prior to his stance against the Iraq War, he often voted with the Republicans. Earl explained that, while Murtha has been standing up for Democrats for a year (his Iraq stance), Hoyer has been standing up for progressive causes for 12 years.

As I didn't really know that much about either of the two men, his explanation made a great deal of sense to me, and I am satisfied with both his vote and the outcome.
