Quoting Sen. Pryor

Posted By on Thu, Mar 26, 2009 at 6:25 AM

From a New York Times article on President Obama's outreach to Democratic members of Congress, particularly flyover land reps, resistant to some of his program:

“Of course, we want to see him succeed,” said Senator Mark Pryor, Democrat of Arkansas, as he entered the luncheon. “My guess is we’re not going to walk in lock step on everything the administration wants. Maybe the Republicans do that, but that’s not a healthy process."

I hope Obama can return the favor on some of our senators' bad ideas, including suggestions for judicial appointees.

    Great piece in Washington Post on the budget crisis in Louisiana. Big tax cuts and corporate welfare will do that to a state, particularly to a state whose previous governor, Republican Bobby Jindal, refused to join the Obamacare-funded Medicaid expansion. There's a lesson there for Arkansas.
