122. How did Dick Durbin get on your list?
I have been frustrated with Durbin (my Senator by the way) in not speaking up as much as I wanted him to from time to time, but I've heard him talk a few times about how he is constrained by his position on the Senate Intelligence Committee from speaking on some subjects. It seems that they can get in serious trouble for talking about things that they learn in the Committee, even if the things become "public" through leaks or investigative reporting. And the Repubs would love any reason to tarnish his reputation.

But I can't think of a stand he took that I had serious disagreements with.
