    Probably nothing.
    Let's face it, being a senator rocks.
    You only have to run every six years and the pay is pretty good.
    Liz may have her own problems with the base, though.
    She is on record supporting--gasp!-- Obama's drone strikes.
    On the bright side, she wanted the drone strikes used in concert with enhanced interrogations.
    So....she wants terrorist suspects tortured and then, blown up.
    Or blown up and then tortured....whatever.
    That should work with the base.
    No matter how cynical I become toward politicians, it's never enough.

    I guess Enzi just prefers working behind the scene in committee and senate matters rather then make headlines.
    Fair enough - but he's had 18 years to do that already. Don't you think that in 18 years a Senator should have some significant legislation he's championed or worked on that has garnered support in his own party or with the entire Senate? If he wants to be a bureaucrat, let him apply for a behind the scenes desk job.

    since liberals have no one who can challenge Enzi in the first place, this just means the republicans get to switch who represents them.

    i never said i liked Enzi, i was just arguing that senators don't have to be media-hounds or glory seekers. i am just surprised what Enzi did to anger conservatives..

    No, not media hounds, or glory seekers, but as CJ said, maybe he should have done something in his term other than collect a paycheck?

    Christ in heaven! The only way to keep political dynasties from recurring in the US is for the public to stop supporting this bull****. Sadly, I am afraid far too many voters will vote for some name they know.

    No more Bushes, no more Clintons, no more Kennedys, no more Pauls, no more Cheneys. We can do better.

    Senate Repubs took a pass on the opposite of your passage. Dems set precedent by accepting NO recess appointments, by pulling those two and ending a stupid legal battle. Today was a good day for the Nation. Time for the House to get off it's TUSH and take New Real Action.

    One would think that, but hey, my state has had Barbara Boxer as a senator for 20 years.
    I'm beginning to think a Senator's job is mostly ceremonial with a dash of pork.

    Remember, that's "Senator Barbara Boxer" - you're not allowed to use her name without the honorific preceding it. Remember, "she worked damn hard to be called Senator". She's also worked damn hard to be called a lot of other things that DP's rules don't allow me to list.

    She'd go a long way in making the GOP look worse than it already does. She may be about two IQ points smarter than Palin. Her positions are pretty much, whatever sounds toughest and angriest towards the rest of the world. She's definitely an "I'm so scared I wet my pants" conservative who can't be afraid enough and therefore the world is a nail and she is the hammer... so long as she doesn't have to do the dirty work she'll be all too willing to donate the lives of everyone else in the USA to all the war causes she'll back. She's definitely her daddy's little girl.

    Now this I like.
    It's much better than the cliched "neo-con chickenhawk" or the overly verbose "chicken little sky is falling conservative".
    Good job, young man!
