IF I CAN'T SEE THEM, THEY CAN'T SEE ME...IF I CAN'T SEE THEM, THEY CAN'T SEE ME...IF I CAN'T....:

For some, a low profile on health vote (JAMES HOHMANN, 4/5/10, Politico)

After announcing his intention to vote for the bill in a news conference televised live on CNN two days before the vote, Obama lauded [Rep. John Boccieri's] political courage. The president noted that the freshman Democrat sat “in as tough a district as there is,” a shout-out that prompted a standing ovation from the House Democratic Caucus.

For the past week, however, Boccieri has gone dark, surfacing only last Wednesday night — in New York City — at a cocktail party fundraiser to benefit his reelection campaign. Otherwise, the congressman had no public schedule. A spokeswoman said he was focused on “constituent services.”

Boccieri is not alone. He’s one of a number of House Democrats who’ve kept a low profile over the recess, a group largely defined by the level of political jeopardy they face this fall.


The least you should expect of your representative is that he never cast a vote he's ashamed of.
