And I think I’ve come up with a plausible answer. This is not to excuse them—I’m not happy at all—but I want to understand the calculation.

First, Republicans aren’t breaking ranks rn. And there are 33 Senate seats up in 2018. 23 are liberal, 10 could be targeted by Republicans.

I think w/ Sessions its as simple as he's a Senator. So a lot of (white) Dem Senators consider him their buddy.

Good, if depressing points. I've wanted to scream at Dems like Warren. But keeping one's powder dry is not a bad option.
