She will vote to give Reid his 60 votes to continue debate, then vote against the final bill when the Dems only need 51 votes. This allows her to tell her constituents that she voted against the boondoggle Health Care bill. Hopefully, the people of her state are smart enough to see thru this political BS tactic, but politicians get away with this sort of double-speak all the time so I’m not betting on it.

Reid needs 60 votes to end debate also. IOW, there is a second cloture vote.

They wont use the nuke option. Too many problems attach to doing that.
