I have zero faith in the Senate to uphold their oath of office! This includes Manchin. I have realized that they will do whatever it takes to push an agenda and the public and the media will simple go with the flow. You speak of political suicide as if that matters anymore for Democrats. Jesse Jackson Jr. was reelected, Alan Grayson was elected back into to congress, John Conyers etc...The public (not all) simple does not care. Most of the people I talk to outside of my immediate circle of associates have "no clue" or don't care about the Constitution.
