47. No doubt McCaskill is already getting nervous
about reelection in '12 in her red-leaning state.

Funny, though... you'd think she might be safe not making all of these qualifications regarding ending the tax cuts for the rich. After all, the right is uber-concerned about deficit spending, right? And not extending tax cuts for the rich would be a simple way to cut down on this, right?

What, you mean the wingers have been full of shit regarding their "concerns" about deficits all along? Color me surprised.
