Winning: Top Senate Dem Recruit Slams ObamaCare
When Nebraska Sen. Ben Nelson cut his "Cornhusker Kickback" deal and cast the deciding vote on ObamaCare, his political career was finished. While he initially made a pretense of possibly running for reelection, he eventually bowed to reality and announced his retirement. Which put Democrats in something of a bind. They don't exactly have a deep bench in the state. So, they did what you'd expect of a party bereft of new ideas, they recruited former Sen. Bob Kerrey to run for his old Senate seat.
