Sounds like there was another Dem defection. Only five more to go, and they can vote.

This is good news, but I'd rather here it from Frist. I worry he's not going to play rough enough with the Dems as he needs to.

Nelson from Florida... There's a ton of Hispanic votes up for grabs in Florida... Now their other Senator in Florida is questioning whether or not a filibuster is wise... Graham is considering a WH run and needs his own state to win...

The thing about the 'Rats. Not only are they racists, but they are not at all beyond demonstrating that FACT at any and every opprotunity.

This may be a tad optimistic, but it seems possible that the pubbies have done a nice job of looking meek just long enough for the rats to swear undying opposition to Estrada, and in general stake out an untenable position.

Now, to make them pay...

Graham has to decide do I thumb my nose at NARAL, or the Peurto Rican/Cuban/Mexican population in my own state, thereby SEVERELY hindering my Senate reelection chances.

Bill Nelson, not under any "higher office" ambitions for now (he's staring at a possible run against Jeb in '06) has apparently put his finger to the wind and made the right choice!

I hope Mary Landrieux doesn't cave so that she can be unelected by her own words. She promised in her campaign to support the Presidents judges and even Estrada specifically I think. The Democraps are really hurting themselves. It's like the Liberal Party here - they are in self-destruct mode and I like it!! The sooner the better.
