Joe Sestak is over at FireDogLake. They had a preliminary discussion yesterday over the content of the questioning. Here's your chance to talk to him about his vote for the Iraq Supplemental Bill.

Howie Klein: I was devastated when I looked over the list of the 86 Democrats who joined the GOP to pass the Iraq Occupation appropriations bill last week. More than 80 of the 86 were just doing what they always do, what comes natural to them. But one vote felt like a kick in the gut: Joe Sestak. Joe ran as a "date-certain" for redeployment Democrat. The first piece of legislation he introduced after beating Weldon was a bill to get us out of Iraq. Since getting to Congress he's had a solid progressive voting record. And then that vote.

Today he's our guest at Firedoglake at noon (EST), 9am, PT. I expect fireworks and I expect him to explain how a decent guy winds up in a bucket with creeps like Rahm Emanuel, Steney Hoyer, Jim Marshall, Gene Taylor and Heath Shuler.
