    I hear ya’. Sen. Nelson is not much of a Democrat, and I also have trouble with many of his positions. The thing is, I always wonder whether putting the full court press on moderate Democrats is such a good idea. It appears to me that when we punish moderates for their views, that we end up with either more Republicans, or more polarized politics.

    Then again, I am not one of those liberals currently complaining that our majority is wasted because of the “Blue Dogs” and the Senate counterparts’ role in restraining the left. Instead, I say take what we can get, and be happy that the “Blue Dogs” don’t do as Sen. Specter did to the Republicans. If every “Blue Dog” or “Blue Dog-like” Democrat went Republican, the Republics would DOMINATE Congress.
