Bleeding Heartland: Where's Fair Share?

Excerpted from this post at Bleeding Heartland
It's being held up in the house by around ten Democratic legislators who are all either firm no votes or on the fence. A disproportionate number of them are women, suggesting that Speaker Pat Murphy's strong-arm tactics might not work so well on legislators of the fairer sex. Whatever the problem with getting these legislators on board, it almost goes without saying that they are wrong for holding out. Almost. ... Most of this is academic though, since enough of the legislators holding out signed pledges that they would support Fair Share legislation if it came up. Anyone who goes back on their word now - I'm looking at you Doris Kelley - deserves a vigorous (and I suspect well-funded) primary in 2008.
