At least he is no longer subject to arm twisting.

If it’s a special election, there’s no way a Democrat can be elected to that seat in this climate. It is predominately Republican.

The “NO” vote doesn’t matter, because you have to pass bills with YESses. This is great news (provided people on this thread are right, that a special election is in order).

but she cant replace him. not in enough time, anyway.
Isn’t it a DAMN SHAME that we have to endure this?
I had a bad dream the other night - that a few congressmen who pledged to vote no ended up found dead (and a press secretary chuckling about it).

How do you know? He may have been one of those Dems in a shaky seat that Pelosi allowed to vote NO, but from whom she wants a YES now.

I wish I could believe that. But, I can't. I think this is part of a highly orchestrated dance to get a YES vote in that seat. (Chicago thuggery!)
