Senator Ben Nelson (D-Nebraska) has sold out.  He caved and announced today that he will vote with his party to break a GOP filibuster on Harry Reid's latest version of Obamacare.  (Link to story here.)

What's next?  Well, that's up to Nancy Pelosi.  If she's ready to accept Reid's bill, we're hosed.  But, if not, efforts to reconcile the House bill and Senate bill could give us some hope.  That compromise could, potentially, lose a Democrat Senator and keep this monstrosity from becoming law.  Likewise, delay is good.  The longer the bill waits for final passage, the greater the chance that a few of the Democrats might actually listen to their constituents and stop this thing.

There's not much hope.  But Christmas is the season of hope.
