MILLINOCKET, Maine, September 9, 2013 — It must be confusing to be a junior Democrat in Congress these days. For the longest time, veteran members have told you that your major concern should be for the environment.

Nancy Pelosi and Harry Reid are working to persuade rank and file Democrats to follow their lead and support President Obama’s plan for U.S. military action in Syria.
This is going to put them in a delicate situation: go along with the leadership, risking a backlash at the polls next year or refuse and suffer reprisals from their superiors.
