You Can’t Hate Bart Stupak

The first story I wrote for Crisis opened with a scene, not a very good one, in Rep. Bart Stupak’s congressional office. So Stupak has always been in the back of my mind. But others must wonder how it could be that this backbencher could bring down the Democrats’ latest health-care reform effort. Some of his success surely is due to the moral power of his cause. But some of it surely is due to his charm and strength of character. Over at TrueSlant, I make the latter case.
