    Sounds like a test case for the Democrats now, use on a wider scale later in 2008.

    The problem with voting for somebody like Tester is that then the Democrats have the senate majority and then Schumer or Hillary becomes majority leader. :(

    Tester may indeed be a good guy, but I am somewhat suspicious of Montana Democrats since they took control of the state legislature, and "Vermont carry" failed to pass in 2005 :mad:

    This whole election is absolutely disgusting. The Republicans are awful and the Democrats are worse. Burns might have had a chance for re-election if one of his aides had stuffed a sock in his mouth some months ago :rolleyes:

    LOL, but isn't it good to know the truth, warts and all?!

    DINOS.

    What matters, the party affiliation or the values?

    We already have plenty of RINOs who are no allies when it comes to what matters.

    Burns might also have had a better chance if he hadn't accepted funny money from that scumbag, Abramoff.

    If you don't do the dirty deed, nobody can tattle on you. Republicans love to claim the "moral high ground," but when you peek under the carpets, they've got as much swept under there as the Democraps.

    IMO Burns' pooping on the firefighters did him more harm than anything. He had a legitimate gripe, but you don't take it out on the troops - you talk to the leadership who make the decisions.

    I suppose I should just throw up my hands and vote for Stan Jones :p

    OUr system certainly has its faults, and this is one of them. If the D's get a majority in the legislature, this is the result.

    If you're willing to accept that result, then vote Democrat. Otherwise vote Republican. Big picture vs. local race.

    I'm not real happy with a lot of the Republicans out there due to their move to the left. Unfortunately most democrats have moved even further to the left.

    As for Tester, I hope he's in the Ben Nelson mold, but I distrust any faux-populist candidates with a D after seeing the "John Kerry the hunter" campaign that was forced on us in 04.

    And Schumer, Leahy, Kennedy, Durbin, and the like in leadership scares the hell out of me.
