Thanks . I was just going by what the article said about Clinton and Gore already having been there to campaign for the dem, and how SP had drawn thousands to maybe 60 people for Romney.
I'm glad of what you say, though in reality the dems already have the 60 they need for a filibuster proof on most imporartant votes -- the two Senators from ME will stand with the Dems on a lot of cloture votes. The next 2 years anyway, will be full throttle Democrat power. They will have majorities that no Republican has had in our lifetime
