Senator McCaskill continues to walk that perilous tight rope between being a progressive/liberal voting with her out of touch party in Washington D.C. (her true self) and the moderate charade she puts on to get elected in Missouri. Last week she was a moderate:

Sen. Claire McCaskill (D-Mo.) made the simple and seemingly non-controversial statement that she supports hearings for President Trump’s Supreme Court nominee, Neil Gorsuch. “We should have a full confirmation hearing process and a vote on ANY nominee for the Supreme Court,” she tweeted just hours before the nomination was announced.
