  •  About Time! But there's still room for worrying... (0+ / 0-)

    ... about how this "centrist/left" Senator might be inclined to compromise. Nevertheless, Sen. Durbin is in the right direction here. And he is leadership, so we can expect he'll influence others, if not already reflect their views.

    Frankly, I'd attribute Durbin's recent expressions of his positions on Social Security (don't touch) and Medicare (don't raise the age) as much to his cementing - if not enhancing - his leadership position in the Senate as to his run for re-election in 2014

    (But as for re-election, the cadre of long-standing Democratic leaders who slate candidates in Illinois have flubbed a number of picks in recent years. We need to keep in every office holder who's proven himself!)

    2014 IS COMING. Build up the Senate. Win back the House.
