10. No, she shouldn't remove them

She didn't need their votes.

Trust me, if she'd needed they would have voted yes.

9. I KNEW Collin Peterson would be one of them. I suppose the pragmatic

side of me recognizes that he's kind of the Joe Manchin of Minnesota, and is better than any Puke in that seat, but just barely.

12. Both have opposed impeachment

No surprise here. Both are in swing districts.

5. Yep. Totally.

Calling their offices today to let them know that if they wish to be with the Repukes, I most certainly will contribute to see a REAL DEM replace them.

18. You're not going to get a real Dem. One represents a district Trump won by 30 points.

Peterson has been there since 1991 and is likely the only Dem who could win.

It's also a district that has gotten progressively more Republican the last decade, as he went from winning by sizable margins to only winning by four-points last year.

Here's how it's voted for president since 2000:

2000: Bush +14
2004: Bush +12
2008: McCain +3
2012: Romney: +10
2016: Trump: +30

14. They were willing.



They were for sale for the right price.

But of course, this is all conjecture. We will in all probability never know.

13. Collin Peterson is from the district that went for Trump by the widest margin in MN. He votes

against the Dems about a quarter of the time when votes come up. He's generally very well liked in the district, which runs a little moderate for all the red that's there. His vote is utterly unsurprising and he'll get reelected as long as he wants.

15. Pelosi didn't

need their votes so released them.

It’s done all the time on tough “for their district” votes.

If you want those seats to go Red, by all means primary them.

16. Thank you for pointing this out so clearly.

Oops, welcomed you to DU when you've been around for years now. Thanks for unlurking!

Edit to add:
I gave these two clowns the benefit of the doubt (enh - I know) but since each of them has opened his mouth afterward to spew idiocies, I have changed my mind. Screw both of them.
