Senate Insiders Say….

Okay, as promised, I now have some good scoop from a pretty solid Senate source (or two). According to Insider(s), Burr, Brownback, Gregg, Nelson of Nebraska, and Webb are VERY good targets for switching against cloture (or perhaps not being there, which amounts to the same thing). Pryor, Bond, and Coleman are other serious possibilities. I am told, too, that Barbara Boxer remains decidedly unhappy with the bill, and is still a definite possibility to switch to the anti-cloture, anti-amnesty side. Others to watch are Collins and Snowe of Maine, who I had counted as lost causes but who apparently still might be open to persuasion. My earlier speculations about Bingamon and Levin and Conrad are not as likely, I am now told, but a smidgen of hope still attaches to them. Murkowski and Craig and Nelson of Florida are seen as lost causes, though, and Ensign also is less likely to switch than I had thought.

And there may be other tricks up the anti sleeves if needed.

More later, probably tomorrow…..
