Clyburn plays hardball with Barrow
I respect that Rep. Jim Clyburn is going to talk about the benefits of healthcare in a district of a Democrat who voted against it. I think that on many issues the Democratic party needs to have more intra-party debate. If Rep. Barrow thinks he is right about his vote then he should asset himself further. I like competition. What I don't like is when politicians don't want to be held accountable for their positions. Similar to the Democrats who believe "marriage is between a man and a woman" but vote to undermine that position, we need to have more debate within the party, and demand more intellectual honesty.
