Response to Warren DeMontague (Reply #25)

29. Well, one has to be very careful.

Scope out the political turf.

In two of the most liberal states in the nation, two of the US Senators supposedly promoted as Hillary VEEP choices, Warren and Franken -- love both of them -- were preceded by a GOP US Senator in their seat. And as to Warren, the MA governor is GOP, too. Thankfully he would have no say in a putative Warren replacement, thanks to MA law. However, when the last senatorial vacancy in MA happened upon Teddy Kennedy's death, we got Scott Brown. And MA does have a fucking GOP governor which shows how even a liberal state can go wrong when one prods the political beast.

My advice. When one needs to take back the US Senate from the opposing party one does not arbitrarily remove a seated senator from your party from their office in order to achieve some political gain. This especially given the vagaries of politics. Think strategically -- long term -- not tactically.

And don't forget. The Dems are in big poo-poo in the 2018 senate races. We need not only a majority; we need a buffer against 2018!
