From Michelle Malkin this morning:
A Hill source says to pay attention to Sen. Ben Nelson. He is reportedly being threatened with closure of an air force base if he doesn’t fall in line and will be offered a “blank check” bribe bigger than Sen. Landrieu’s.
Malkin also reports that after all the uproar, Senator Joe Lieberman is now cool with ObamaCare.
So does that leave only Nelson?
Vote for it and get not only pork, but the whole pig — or shut down Offutt?
This is a “naked effort by Rahm Emanuel and the White House to extort Nelson’s vote.” They are “threatening to close a base vital to national security for what?” asked the Senate staffer.
“I could not and should not cast a vote that brings down your presidency.”
