    I think most "moderates" see how recent flippers have fared and besides, if the Dems hold the Senate with at least 52 seats, Biden's vote will keep the Dems in the majority. 51 seats? Then all bets are off, and lieberman AND Nelson could be convinced.

    The key is keeping the senate with at least 52 seats. Nelson's shtick is to play both sides, he loses negotiating power with Dems if he joins the GOP caucus, and he's not crazy enough for the teabaggers, and even he knows that.

    Also, Dems would be wise to fund HCR and Fin reform bill during the lameduck session. IF possible, fund them for the next two years, taking the GOP out of the equation.

    Will they grow the spine to force a vote?

      No, of course not. But be sure to GOTV anyway! Give generously! Make phone calls, knock on doors. All so we can have more of the same, except worse.

      To discuss Republican policies that hurt the less affluent and favor those that need no favors is class warfare.
