U.S. News: Tauscher "Second-Most-Disliked Democrat"


1 comment

U.S. News and World Report correspondent James Pethokoukis has labeled East Bay Congresswoman Ellen Tauscher the second most reviled Democrat after Joe Lieberman. The collection of hyperactive flame junkies known as the Netroots has gathered at sites like DailyKos to talk about running a challenger to her seat, despite a largely progressive portfolio. Tauscher's sins? Voting for the war didn't help, of course, but apparently her consistent support for free trade has crossed the line with the cyberlefties.
