But if the voters of West Virginia want to re-elect Byrd or Jay Rockefeller, they have the right to do so!I also would favor requireing more debates to be on TV - especially on pbs, in return for public funding. and would require cable provider companies to run all three cspan channels on basic cable, at no extra charge, as well as pbs TV. cspan does a good job of covering candidate debates, and town hall meetings, and forums, and campaign events. Even coming up soon, where the republican fund-raiser in Iowa, with Tim Pawlenty, will be broadcast live, I think. Check with cspan. They are fair, and broadcast both the big gOP and big Demcoratic events in Iowa, since we are the first state with a caucus in an election year, just as N. H. is the first state with a primary. People all over the US have a right to see how the candidates do here, and Pawlenty seems to be a prospective candidate for 2012, since he decided not to run for re-election for Governor, but spend his time campaigning instead, apparently. I don't se him quitting to write a book, or go be a talk show host, or anything else. He deserves to be heard nationally, and cspan provides that service. Just as they covered the debates in New Jersey and Virginia, for the elections in a week and a day from now.

The last time some of these lawmakers were out in public was prior to Kennedys assination.They have no idea of the real condition of todays Americans or what goes on in America or abroad.They only know which companys will send them money for their reelection campaigns.

He's already been convicted on a corruption charge with Stevens, he testified against stevens. This is another charge. Have you forgotten about Stevents his partner in crime?

Wonder if he'll get on the same Cell Block with Libby and the Lobbyist, Abramoff.

Have they shut down the probation office in the White House?

Dude... It's called a paragraph. Look into it.
Progressive's posts are always very educational and there is never any name calling. Instead of complaining about paragraphs try to read what he or she says some time.

Daggett is a fraud! A spoiler whose job it is to preserve Jon Corzine's job for the next four years. We never heard from him before and it's unlikely that we'll ever hear from him again once this election is over. Corzine's been described as the "Chaplain on a pirate ship" He's George Norcross's window dressing, a stuffed shirt who moves his lips while Norcross turns the knobs. George Norcross is a behind the scenes, democratic political boss like the state hasn't had since the days of Frank Hague. Corzine is on the heels of Jim "I am a Gay american" McGreevy. You'd think that would be an easy act to follow and look good. But No! Corzine and the state actually looks worse. Credit where credit is due! Corzine did sign the "Trans" rights bill! That was the last useful thing he did. This state is mired in too much regulation, lack of jobs, too big a state payroll and too high taxes! Christie is our only chance of any recovery.

<quoted text> Sorry, I am relying on national media coverage, and know nothing about Steve Lonegan. Want to tell us about him? What party, what policy views, etc? Still curious whether folks who are moderate or even liberal, but are so-so about Corzine, would prefer him nonetheless, or dare to vote for Daggett. I can easily understand that the right-wing types would prefer a Republican or Conservative.(note, I merely mean those right of center on the political spectrum - this is not my usual attack on the ultra- right-wing extremists, who are a smaller, more vocal bunch). Naturally I oppose Regent University, sexist, racist, homophobic types - but many who are right of center are decent folks. Especially those who oppose the real wasteful spending, even when Republicans do it! I like folks like Walker at the Petersen Institute, for example.

That name,"Progressive", bothers me, I can never figure out just what it is that "progressive" people are progressing towards! Being a little nervous about govt spinning out of control and propelled by good intentions,(Ala the French Revolution, 1789) I am worried. Too many times, these progressive movements have ended as unecessary bloodbaths.(Google Death by Government)

Glad you liked my comment. And you must be guilty of what I am certain would be rare for you...a typo, since you said "liberals are too much about substance".
So far, and I've read every post on this thread, you have displayed only a superfluity of wordiness in defense of the apparent belief that malfeasance on the part of Democrats most usually has some plausible and excusable explanation, both of which are lacking when malfeasance is committed by Republicans. Your only exception to that appears to be if you can trade, as one might exchange POWs, a person/persons currently in the White House for positive proof of allegations made concerning events of 60 years ago.
Methinks you may have paid overmuch attention to the likes of Harry Byrd, Ted Kennedy, Barney Frank and that screaming 'emotionally overwrought' Congressman from FLA whose name escapes me at the moment who spent hours on TV back in the nineties trying to convince us that just because a President committted a crime didn't mean he should be treated as a criminal. Especially since his popularity ratings were high, and...well...."he's a member of our club".
I know you are trying to match the intelligence of Progressive's posts by using the biggest words you can think of, but then you become so impressed with yourself that you start a sentence with "methinks" LOL!

They arent called bribes----- they are called campaign contributions.They arent called lobbyists for big corporations---- they just get 1000,000 dollar jobs then retire from the Senate.By voting for issues related to profits for big or overseas American corporations or trade laws.
