The Downside Of Spinelessness

Is there a clumsier political hack in Washington than Ben Nelson?  If he’s going to be Warren Buffet’s errand boy, he can’t be this obvious:

Democrats were surprised on Monday evening when Sen. Ben Nelson (D-Neb.) did an abrupt about-face and became the only Democrat to help filibuster legislation to revamp Wall Street regulations.

The removal of a provision that would have dramatically benefited financial tycoon and Nebraska native Warren Buffett, it was said, played a role in the Senator’s flip.

“He was on board until today and the only thing that changed was the removal of that provision,” said one Democratic aide, who definitively said Nelson changed his vote because the Buffett carveout was removed.

What a tool.  At some point, this guy needs to either switch parties or find a real job.  He looks like a crook — and not a very bright one.
