123. Here's the point: Either the electeds do what you want or you vote them out!
My observation has been that you can't persuade electeds once they have been elected unless they are already 99%+ in your corner already. If they won't do what you want the only solution is to vote them out and vote someone else IN.

I've GOT the Congressman I want, I'm not very impressed with my Senators but I'm working on getting Kendrick Meek elected to replace Mel Martinez (R) in 2010 and I'll work to replace Nelson in 2012 if he screws us on healthcare. Same goes for Obama.

Doug D.
