133. I agree with your point on the word games with his name.
That's a real tin ear. It made me uncomfortable when I saw it around but I hadn't paid attention to MoveOn for so long I had no idea what the dust up was about. Thanks.

I do not agree with "veto proof margins" concept. That's more three card monty froom the Money Party (non partisan group of both aprties). We lost the FISA expansion bill with the help of 16 Democratic Senators, 16! They don't care about the issue, they really don't care much about any issue vital to that 40% you talk about. They consistently vote with Bush on the biggies - tax cuts, Iraq/Iran, bankruptcy, etc. "Veto Proof" is just another word for give us more money for campaigns.

The serious middle, and it's really a more populist group than "middle," bought a "lemon" in 2006 and they know it. I don't quite know how those candidates were selected but they're sure not reflective of the majority of citizens, vast majority, who want the nonsense to stop period. Richardson broke the code and told how 3 months is viable but the public already knew that.

We had a golden opportunity - a real opposition - and we blew it. We'll be lucky to get the chance again. But what candidates will follow; more of the same "Blue Dogs" who screw us every big vote? No reason not to think so.
