Nice to See One Man Making a Difference

Senator Ben Nelson is fighting his entire party.

The AP reports on the staunchly pro-life Nebraska Democrat:

"A moderate Democrat whose vote could be crucial said Thursday an attempted Senate compromise on abortion is unsatisfactory, raising doubts about whether the chamber can pass President Barack Obama's health care overhaul by Christmas.

"As it is, without modifications, the language concerning abortion is not sufficient," Nebraska Sen. Ben Nelson, a key holdout on the health care bill, said in a statement after first making his concerns known to Majority Leader Harry Reid, D-Nev."

It is certainly nice to see one man fighting for his principles. Senator Nelson says he has other problems with the bill besides abortion, too.

Re. "Nice to See One Man Making a Difference" - well, it won't be Nelson, as he has now sold-out the pro-life movement apparently in exchange for some big bucks for Nebraska. There are no pro-life Democrats in the Senate - that is the cruel truth, and we'd better get used to it.

I certainly misjudged him.
