Grijalva on why he didnt get picked by Obama

Great interview in the Daily Star:

Do you think Obama simply didnt want to have many liberals in key positions?
I think its, were seen as convenient allies, not as necessary allies. Its an awkward position. Were taken for granted. Were not like blue dog Democrats (moderates who periodically stray from mainstream liberal positions), who threaten to vote against children and health care to get what they want. Maybe we need to do that.
