Ben Nelson and Blanche Lincoln have no idea what you're talking about.

Actually he was seeking the support of his own party. Did you forget Blanche Lincoln?

Congrats to Blanche Lincoln, 1st woman to chair the Senate Cmte. Her new portrait will hang in the hearing room.
Remember when Council for a Livable World endorsed Alabama racist John Sparkman or Joe Lieberman & Blanche Lincoln?
Followed a big Lincoln with Florida plates on the hwy - imagined it was filled with The Golden Girls. Blanche was making "farm hand" jokes.
Maybe climate change, but not card-check. My understanding is every Senate D but Blanche Lincoln was on board w/it.
The previous time a Dem senator went before voters in Arkansas, Blanche Lincoln lost by 20 points. I still respect her record on Dodd-Frank.
Adam Green of the PCCC pointed out when Landrieu was handily defeated by some hack GOP nonentity Saturday that the last of the Democrats from the Republican wing of the Democratic Party who prevented the public option in the Affordable Care Act-- the others being Joe Lieberman, Ben Nelson and Blanche Lincoln-- had all been driven from office within 4 years; I think he left out Mark Pryor-- but he also lost his Senate seat last month. Good riddance to all of them. Take a look at the ProgressivePunch lifetime crucial vote scores of the half dozen Democratic Senators who have voted the most frequently against progressive values in the current session: • Tom Carper (DE)- 72.30 • Claire McCaskill (MO)- 72.13 • Kay Hagan (NC)- 70.67 defeated • Mark Pryor (AR)- 66.50 defeated • Mary Landrieu (LA)- 65.42 defeated • Joe Manchin (WV)- 61.75 - See more at:
After all of this, Mark Pryor's margin was only 3 points less than Blanche Lincoln's.
Arkansas' Tom Cotton is almost beating Mark Pryor by the same landslide margin that John Boozman beat Blanche Lincoln by in 2010.
In 2010, Ron Johnson defeated Russ Feingold in WI; and John Boozman defeated Blanche Lincoln in AR.

Disappointed that pulled a Blanche Lincoln on today’s vote. If they want a Republican, they’ll vote for Cotton!
Notice Lincoln's 2009 wording: "While I may not have been clear about my position in the past..."
Blanche Lincoln, George Pataki and Wellington Webb. This is the beltway pundit version of a bi-partisan coalition.

We have a great chance to take back the Senate next year and turn Barack Obama into a lame duck. Here's a brief rundown of the key races. Meanwhile -- let's have a Recall for Sen. Joe Manchin of West Virginia? ALASKA -- Freshman Democrat Mark Begich is seeking a second term. In 2008, he won without a majority (48%) and last year Obama got only 41% in Alaska. ARKANSAS -- Democrat Mark Pryor is extremely vulnerable. In 2010, Blanche Lincoln (D) lost her Senate race by 20 points, and Barack Obama got only 37% of the vote here last year. LOUISIANA -- Democrat Mary Landrieu squeaked by in 2008 with 52%, but Obama lost the state by 18 points last year. MONTANA -- Democrat Max Baucus is retiring. This open Senate seat is a prime pick-up opportunity in a state Obama lost by 13 points. North Carolina -- Democrat Kay Hagan rode Obama's coattails to a narrow win in 2008 when Obama was winning the state. 61% of North Carolina voters approved a marriage protection amendment at the ballot box last May, and the state vo ...

While I don't want any Democratic Senator to lose in 2014 to a Tea Party Republican, I would rather see activists pool their resources to help Ashley Judd win McConnel's seat in Kentucky than spend a dime on Democrats who cower and cave in to the Republicans out of fear of losing an election. Does anybody remember how well the "acting Republican to survive the next election" strategy worked for Blanche Lincoln in 2010? Hint: If you forgot who Blanche Lincoln is it is because she lost by twenty some points in 2010. (Keith)

So it should have come as no surprise to anyone this week when porcine Philadelphia power broker and Rendell fundraiser, David Cohen came out of the shoot favoring Pennsylvania's worst governor in modern times, Tom Corbett. Corbett, steeped in the corruption and elitism that a slimy character like Cohen thrives in, will be up against New Dem Allyson Schwartz. In the past, Cohen and his wife have contributed thousands of dollars towards Schwartz's political career. Although usually identified as a Democratic fundraiser, Cohen, an executive vice president at Comcast, has given hundreds of thousands of dollars in thinly veiled bribes to politicians on both sides of the aisle-- though he seems to prefer conservative Democrats--whether Fred Upton (R-MI) and Jim Gerlach (R-PA) or Blanche Lincoln (D-AR) and Chris Carney (Blue Dog-PA). He's considered a key player in Rendell's miserable career.
Maybe Diamond cinemas in Navan need a change of management. Movies that get one and a half stars gettign three showings while Lincoln and Zero Dark Thirty get one... no new releases for this week came in, no Django Unchained, no Monsters Inc. 3D. consistently late with releases, if they come in at all. I'd love to support a local cinema, but Blanch IS only a short drive away.

Agreed! And money isn't everything.Otherwise Blanche Lincoln would not have lost reelection by 21%.

let's be honest - you and I have as much chance of being DOI secretary as Blanche Lincoln.
High on my list of worrisome successors for DOI head is former Senator Blanche Lincoln (D-Ark).
.You will learn just as Blanche Lincoln of Arkansas learned. Winning in a red state not about upholding RW views.

"In rural areas of America, there is a growing increase in poverty, homelessness and hunger. You cannot separate these factors from domestic violence ‑- a mother with three kids and no financial security is going to stiffen her lip and take the abuse, because not only does she have nowhere else to go, she has three children depending on her for survival." --Sen. Blanche Lincoln, Arkansas
Imagine that in some alternate universe, in 2010, President Barack Obama had encouraged Sens. Ben Nelson, Joe Lieberman, Blanche Lincoln, and Mark Pryor to create an "Independent Democratic Caucus" that would caucus with Republicans and deprive the majority of control of the Senate?
Blanche Lincoln was a legend. Mark Pryor is going to be cake. He may as well announce he's not seeking reelection.
Senate Democrats. They start this next 4 year election cycle with 55 seats and without any of the "fly in the ointment" peeps among their ranks. No more Joe Lieberman, no more Max Bauchus, no more Ben Nelson, no more Blanche Lincoln. Another election coming up in 2 years, they have a legit shot at Mitch McConnel's seat, taking down the Republican leader of the Senate.

Why U.S. foreign aid still makes sense - Mike Huckabee and Blanche Lincoln agree in this op-ed -
No, Union-Leader, the "fantasy" is that Ben Nelson, Blanche Lincoln are "Democrats" in any sense other than name-tag.
or a Blanche Lincoln, or a Don Pyror [gee, thanks AR] or a Ben Nelson [ugh]

Here's some info on the "Dodd Frank act" that they keep mentioning... Volcker Rule: Only 3% of a bank's tangible common equity can be invested in hedge funds or private equity. Also under the Volcker Rule, prop trading at bank holding companies is not allowed, but of course this will be subject to substantial debate about what prop trading is. As CNBC's Kate Kelly reports, there's also language in the bill that could prevent banks from hedging their exposure to trades done on behalf of clients. This is a response to the Goldman ABACUS scandal, and the idea that banks are taking positions contrary to their clients wishes. Major banks are said to be very concerned about this. Blanche Lincoln's anti-derivatives rule remained somewhat intact. Banks will be allowed to use various swaps to hedge their own exposure, but dealing of many derivatives will be forced into separately capitalized hives of the big firms. As Reuters notes,the Fed is gaining several powers in this including greater oversight of systemic r ...
Obama OPPOSED the public option- so did Ben Nelson, Jon Tester, Blanche Lincoln in Senate. All Dems (on paper).
Lonnie Alcaida-North (Thanx!) Democrats had majority for all of 50 days! In those 50 days we had obstruction by "d"emocrats Landrieu, Blanche Lincoln (lost her reelection bid bc of it), Ben Nelson, and Manchin. Sen Kennedy was also close to death and not able to vote. So make sure you tell throw those facts out there to the *** who continue to repeat this monstrosity of a lie.
Of course they are .. And the Joe Lieberman/Blanche Lincoln "centrists" have been helping them all along
And I'd do so from the point of view of the incumbents being moderates (Lincoln Chafee/Blanche Lincoln).
. Senate Dems never had a 'filibuster proof' anything with the likes of Ben Nelson and Blanche Lincoln.
From 1999 to 2009, Blanche Lincoln was a Democratic senator from Arkansas and Ted Kennedy was a Democratic senator from Massachusetts.
.Center left becomes absurd w/ demands that Blanche Lincoln and Ben Nelson be supported, even though doomed REGARDLESS.
...and Blanche Lincoln and Mark Warner and Jim Webb and Kent Conrad and Byron Dorgan and Mark Pryor and Claire McCaskill?
Irony: primary against *** Lugar = bad. primary against Blanche Lincoln and Joe Lieberman = good.
Even if Blanche Lincoln had won the primary in 2010, she was still down in the polls and was likely to lose the general election
