Does anybody else think Ben Nelson sounds like he's one close election away from switching parties?

Would you ever consider becoming a Republican?

Somebody said not long ago that people don't always leave the party; the party leaves the people. So, recognizing that you never know what the future's going to hold, what might happen, you never say never. But am I considering it right now? No.

If you run for re-election in 2006, then, you're absolutely committed to running as a Democrat?

I have every intention, if I run again, to run as a Democrat.

Speaking of "Democrats", does anyone else think Lieberman's revived interest in private accounts is connected to the revived talk of him replacing Rumsfeld? Yeah, me neither.
