57. Is, in this case, a hack.
I'm sorry, but political pragmatism does not trump the Constitution. Louise Slaughter has been an awesome member of the House for a long time. It's time for her to get real on this and stop being afraid of the big bad Republican Noise Machine.

Regardless of her illustrious past, Louise does not get a pass on this one: Nobody does. She took an oath to preserve, protect and defend the United States Constitution. This President and his henchmen are hell-bent on destroying it. If she cannot defend it against these bastards, she needs to step aside for somebody who will.
