  • I think they are doing whatever they think they need to do to keep thier jobs.

    I guess all you have to do to switch parties pay the fee and pick a different colored name tag when it's time for your meetings.

    And all this time i thought it was about ideology.

    But isn't it distrubing that the republican's (in this case, i realize the reverse would also be true) don't give a shit who is on thier team? I mean...that seems like one hell of a flip flop.

  • They just wised up, all put their Kool-aid down, switched back to Dr. Pepper, and saw Obama for who and what he really is.

    Depends on what they say while they do it. Is it switching name tags or officially declaring their old party's pendulum has swung beyond where they're willing to go? Keeping Pelosi after everyone asked them not to, going easy on Rangel, everybody has a line somewhere.
