    Chicago style politics - nobody can claim they weren't warned.

    I wonder whether they are:

    a. Shocked.
    b. Surprised.
    c. Relieved.
    d. All of the above.

    Lucky Dems!

    Before this is over I don't think any Dem will want him to stump for them.

    He'll be another Bush. Poison.

    If I was a democrat running for re-election, I'd tell Mr. Barack to go campaign for my opponent.

    I think even some of the Dems are smart enough to work that out.

    Sadly, the real purpose of many politicians is not to get re-elected, but to find a way to feed off of the taxpayers. Considering the suicidal mission this vote represents for many Dems, the only logical explanation for their support is that they are getting paid off with promises of appointments or jobs in lobbying firms.
