>... Alabamian with a mischievous smile
That’s a smile I’d like to see in the White House.
I don’t think Jeff caves on his principles.
As an Alabama native, I have voted for him every time. He was once considered on the short list for a SCOTUS nomination, but those days passed him by. He does frustrate me at times, though. I e-mailed him in early-2009 encouraging him to block Eric Holder's nomination to the AG. He replied that the POTUS had the right to nominate whoever he saw fit. So, he let EH get through the Senate committee for a vote. He did end up voting against EH, but by then the damage was done ... and that was that.
I e-mailed both Sessions and Shelby (our other GOP Senator) last week imploring them to fight this bill. They both voted NO to keep it from coming out of the Senate committee. Alas, too many RINOs and now it is on the Senate floor.
