Kyrsten Sinema, Patriot

Kyrsten Sinema, who holds the same position on the legislative filibuster that Barack Obama and Joe Biden and Hillary Clinton, not to mention every single Senate Democrat, held only about a year and half ago, just reiterated her support for minority protections in the Senate, federalism, and national stability. And though Sinema is going to support all kinds of policies I detest, today, her principled effort to save the Senate from a demagogic president and his cynical collaborators while under massive political pressure — knowing full well she will never benefit from the media adulation Republican defectors enjoy — offers us a rare instance of political courage. She is a patriot.
