Will Mississippi Democrats Criticize Their Own?

Adding to the Mississippi Democrats dilemma is the fact that two of the three Democrat Representatives from the state either outright oppose the legislation (Taylor) or sort-of oppose it (Childers). Special interest groups and Republicans are not holding this legislation up; nervous Democrats are.

The Democrats are going to need to be very careful. If they speak too loudly in favor of Obamacare, a very vulnerable Representative from North Mississippi can find an unexpected backlash. Travis Childers was able to fend off attacks in 2008 that he was a pawn of Pelosi and the national Democrats; I don’t think he will be able to rid himself of his own state party.
