A Democrap who might stab his party in the back for his own political convience.

Sen. Bill Nelson (D-NE) has told The Hill that he is negotiating with Sen. Trent Lott (R-MS), chairman of the Rules Committee, to reach a “compromise” that would forfeit the right of senators to filibuster President Bush’s most radical judicial nominees.

Why would Nelson bend on such a fundamental issue? According to The Hill, Nelson thinks standing on principle has put him and others in “politically difficult positions":

There is nothing wrong with losing a battle on priciple. Screw the fact that it is politically difficult. Get some balls or breasts or whatever will allow us to have some integrity and hard headed stubborness! At least a fight fought and maybe lost on principle, instead of bending over and laying down every time, is a fight that gets the issue on the minds of more than just a few backroom negotiators. This is more protection for incumbency and it stinks. What the hell is up with our party??? Where is James Michael Curley when we need him?I'm disgusted. I suppose Warren Henderson and Doug (Bud?)Mellman will be at the Truman Dinner this year discussing how we can continue to abide by the Righty agenda. I'll make the call and invite them myself. Madda fack, I'll head to the Wagon Wheel now and wait for their next scamming session. Tragic!!! Oh the humanity and our fallen party.
I am so very weary of those who pander to the right.
