A perspective from our blog community worth sharing . . .
"She's absolutely wrong if she thinks this will help her win over Republicans. They're never going to like her. In the meantime, Democrats should understand that when it's time stand up for healthcare funding, immigration and our core principals - Sen. Claire McCaskill will vote with the opposition. I won't ever vote for her now that she has completely FAILED to support the values she claims to uphold."
On Twitter, the embattled Missouri Sen. has argued for a political middle-ground amid yet another divisive debate.
