Markey’s odd politics of apparent conviction

Colorado's surprise Democratic Representative for the conservative 4th Congressional District, Betsy Markey, is no party-line voter and she won't be swayed, it seems, by obvious political strategy considerations. Her vote for the Clean Energy Act Friday was more evidence that she is being lead by her own lights. Her swing-vote position with the majority makes her a disproportionately powerful first-term member of Congress -- and therefore maybe the best possible choice in 2010 for clear-headed 4th District Republicans.
