Harkin is moving to the center, again.
Isn't it interesting that this Des Moines Register Editorial offers up an endorsement of Judge John G. Roberts, even though the Senate Democratic Minority Leader Harry Reid & friends (Ted Kennedy, Barbara Boxer, John Kerry, Jon Corzin and Frank Lautenberg.) are publicly objecting to the nomination?
Light bulb moment --
Harkin's starting his reelection campaign a little early-- (he usually becomes a centrist about two years before he needs to get reelected) -- so expect a Harkin 'yes' vote on Roberts confirmation and the Register is just doing their part to give the old guy some cover.
(And you guys think we don't know this stuff happens, tsk, tsk.)
