Grayson is...well, he would be okay, even if he is self destructing. Gabbard, though, I don't care to have associated with Hillary and wouldn't wish on Bernie. However, it's 3 endorsements, and so good for him.

They should wait until after the primary to endorse. Oh wait, that only counts for people who endorse Clinton.

And Greyson said he'd follow his constituents... did a poll and went with the winner.
Is DWS a super? I thought they would be disqualified.

That was in no way limited to his constituents. Many of us suggested he limit to them, but he chose not to.

but that really doesn't sound like good policy - even if you are a congressperson. Impartiality and all that.
