Since it's bascially summertime and things are slowing down a bit, stories like Politico's look at Sestak and his relations with Dem colleagues are going to have extra shelf-time. Our pals at GrassrootsPa (left) have two links to the story today (and we've posted about it twice as well), which gives us more time to ponder this question:
Jason Altmire says Joe Sestak does "his own thing"?
Fellow sophomore Altmire -- who like Sestak came into Congress with the midterm tidal wave of 2006 -- is the one who voted against health care reform and cap-and-trade, two of the biggest priorities of national Democrats, while Sestak voted in favor of both. (Only one other Dem congressman statewide -- Schuylkill's Tim Holden -- voted against both measures.)
