jeffp, good luck on the cook out!

I was listening to "Meet the Press," this morning, jeffp, and Senator Daschel was on with Tim Russert. Russert showed him a quote Daschel made in a newspaper when Senator Ben Campbell switched from the Democratic party and became a Republican. Daschel was quoted as saying that if Campbell wanted to be fair with the people of Colorado, he would resign his seat and run for re-election as a Republican in a special election. So there must be some provision for doing it. As you might imagine, however, he made no such demands on Jeffords.
