I'm all about legislators being independent and voting their beliefs rather than following the dictates of the party elders. However, I'm a little surprised that rookie Senator Centerfold (aka Sen. Scott Brown of MA) has ditched the Republican party on two key votes on the massive banking bill. It's particularly surprising given that he is so new. You'd think he'd be trying to get in with those party elders since he doesn't have to worry about an election.
Wassup wi dat? We may as well as have had Ted Kennedy there.
