    I may be misremembering things but I seem to recall her having a lot to do with public option never being debated, as well as some nasty positions on things like the patriot act.

    Actualy no it turns out I'm not misremembering things.

    “when people hear ‘public option’ they hear ‘free health care.’ Everybody wants free health care. Everybody wants health care they don’t have to pay for.”

    That's what she had to say about the public option, She also voted for the protect America act. And she's a PIPA cosponsor.

    “Every year Internet piracy costs the United States billions in earnings and compromises the jobs of millions of American workers...I understand that this bill is a work in progress, and I plan to work closely with all interested parties to ensure that the effect of this legislation on individual rights does not outweigh the overall benefit of combating the theft of intellectual property.”

    She is not a better democrat, and while I would hate to see the balance shift in any way towards republicans in the Senate she's not doing our party any favors by listing herself as a dem and voting as a blue dog.
