Bennet, whose ProgressivePunch crucial vote score is 76.83, is firmly in the ranks of fearful, tepidly moderate conservatives like Mark Warner (VA), Kay Hagan (NC), Claire McCaskill (MO), Tom Carper (DE) Mark Pryor (AR), and Mark Udall (CO), who often water down progressive proposals in committee, making them all but useless to working families fighting for their lives against corporate predators.
Staffers say the reason it took Bennet so long to decide whether to take the job-- a record three weeks that drove Washington media crazy-- was because he was negotiating a leadership platform that would promote moderate Democrats.

Do Bennet and Warren, both Democrats, have the same goals in the Senate? Obviously not. With one, bankers will continue to win. With the other, bankers will start fearing the clinking of jail cell doors and might start acting a little more ethically and legally.
Both the bankers, and the members of the Senate Banking Committee, should take notice.
