Other than Karl Rove's dream of a campaign run by Hillary Clinton, my biggest disappointment in this campaign cycle has been the silence of Jim Matheson. His silence is curious and maddening, especially given the bold results of how his district voted for Barack Obama in the primary. Even if he had supported Hillary, at least it's a stand.
How is Matheson going to have any respect in the Democratic caucus if he continues to act in this way? Oh, I know - maybe he should sponsor a frivolous and unconstitutional video game bill like H.R.5990. That should do it.
If Rocky Anderson doesn't get tapped for a Cabinet post, he should contest Jim's seat in 2010. It's time we had a representative who at least takes the time to explain his position, any position, even if it is disagreeable. It's time for this Bush Democrat to wake up and acknowledge the voters.
