Democrats and Israel

A post by M. Simon on Democrats "forgetting their anger" over 9/11 caused me to think of how to measure the "commitment to Israel" of Democratic lawmakers. A serious commitment is likely to be directly related to the number of Jewish voters in the state. A "scorecard" of items where AIPAC encouraged members to contact their representative would be a starting point, but I expect these items to be fairly bipartisan. A more accurate measure would take speeches into account as well. One must then decide what level of support for the peace process implies a "safe Israel", even though the lawmaker may have sincere faith in the PA. I put this up not to bother the poor guy anymore and to have a public record in case I decide to do something.
