    That will happen only if he thinks that it would be giving a difficult bill to Democrats running in purple and red states - and I think Obama's accommodation pushes the balance to it not being hard to vote against McConnel's bill even in those states.

    Not to mention, he needs to think of Republicans (in addition to Snowe and Collins) who would be hurt if they voted  FOR it - Scott Brown being the first to come to mind - though McConnell could likely HELP him as he would vote against it - and be praised for independence!
