Senator Ben Nelson of Nebraska has again shown that he isn't fit to be a Democrat. He has repeatedly ignored his Democrat party's leadership, preferring instead to acquiesce in his constituents' wishes. On Tuesday, Nelson said that having already "supported more than 215 of President Bush's nominations to the federal bench, including Chief Justice John Roberts", he will now cast his vote to confirm Supreme Court nominee Samuel Alito. Senator Ben Nelson, my kind of Democrat. The kind the party wishes they could kick out.
