        has been an appalling disappointment. Was I seduced by a cool pair of glasses? I contributed to her campaign!

          values" during the campaign.  I sent her a tweet to ask why she was voting with the Republicans on the shut down.  I was surprised to see that she actually replied.  "Shutdown is reprehensible.  Congress needs to work together."  I tweeted back "Shutdown is reprehensible so you cross party lines to vote with the Republicans who caused it."  That was the last I heard from her.

            the fastest move away from her previous positions since Kirsten Gilllibrand, and unfortunately in the opposite direction. She came to Netroots Nation a couple of years ago!

             I really don't get it. Barber is disappointing,but considering that he's in Giffords' seat, and was Giffords' COS(?) at least his positions make some sense.
