    as they like on bills where their votes wouldn't make a difference either way, to protect themselves in the next election? I mean, had they voted for this bill, it still would have failed, right? And had their votes been relevant, are we sure that they still would have voted against it? Do we know that for a fact?

    Symbolic votes are just that, symbolic. If you're going to die on a hill, make sure that it's worth dying on. Politics is as much about living to fight another day as it is to getting good things passed, which we're unable to do right now.
