Just saw that Sestak got beat in PA

He was one who supported Bernie. The POS Chris Hayes asked Bernie about not endorsing Sestak last night and Bernie said he didn't know enough about him. I don't blame Bernie for that at all. You don't endorse people you haven't vetted just because they endorsed you.

Ugh, looks like a Third Way Democratic candidate for Senate in PA. A former lobbyist who worked for the state EPA and gave grants to companies her husband lobbied for, something that triggered an ethics investigation and that has subsequently been banned in PA. Sounds like a perfect Third Way Democrat to get routed in November.

he really should have known about Sestak; wouldn't have been too hard. He has a great record, and interesting history, and is certainly independent-minded, which has resulted in Dem PTB opposing him twice.
