    Purple or not, they jumped ship didn't they? They saw the results of the midterms, and voted the way the purple people wanted for a change.

    Are you serious.....it was a marker to see what Demos would break. Now if you can't figure that out then you surely don't have a clue about Politics. You might need to go back and ask your teacher for help, on what is political strategy.

    Repubs have historically drawn between one third and two fifths of union votes. Keystone XL might tip that a little more.

    Stop before you do more damage. You obviously do not understand the first vote that was taken. The only ones hoping that the vote would be anything more than symbolic was the Repubs who thought they had a chance to get the bill through on that vote. Go back and follow the political commentary...the Democrats knew that the Republicans ultimately had enough Democratic votes to get the bill through. I think you might be the only person in America that believed that there was a chance that it wouldn't. Oh well....you probably also believe there is a chance that Obama isn't going to veto the bill, right?

    Oh puuuuuleeze spare me the comedy routine. Again.....go ask you teacher about political strategy. Obviously you do not understand the issue at all. If they ever had the Votes. It would have passed long before now.

    There are more GOP and Democratic Senators that are for this bill, than long term jobs created by it....

    False, and laughably false if you include the increased refinery throughput on the Gulf Coast.
