BINGO - Exactly what is happening - All seven of these GOP'ers are being offered all types of "love" piece type articles if they will switch and vote with the DEM's (by ALL in the MSM).
But notice how NONE of the DEM's are being tagged by the MSM to possible defect from the DEM position. (it is such a joke how bias the media are). We don't see any articles trying to persuade Democrat Ben Nelson from jumping.
Nevertheless, these 7 GOP'er better stand firm.
good point, but remember, an independat repub = maverick, an independent Dem (like Nelson) = no national media time.
