As usual, it’s only when a decision is locked in that ‘people stand up’ in opposition. How brave. Maybe they might sign a letter, too. When outcome (and polling/fund raising) are unknown? Chirp. After all, consider Rockefeller’s mindset. Those unsent letters he wrote to Cheney? When he put them in his desk drawer, we’re sure he remembers slamming that drawer with particular Eastwood-like cool.
