10. fine, but when the Blue Dogs won't vote with you, what can you pass?
Say we get a really excellent bill and it gets 180 votes, then what?

Give up?

Do you know anything about George Miller? Back in 1994, as a member of the leadership, implored the leadership to make badly needed changes or they were going to get their asses kicked in the elections. He was right, they didn't listen and all our asses were kicked.

What I'm saying is that they aren't the monolith that you say they are and identifying who is the problem would be helpful, because if you get rid of them all and replace them with the same combination of folks, you are going to be in the same boat, whereas, if you get rid of those who are the problem and replace them with folks who will act differently --well, you might actually accomplish something.

sadly, your broad brush can't help do that.
