Bill Nelson needs to _____ or get off the pot. Still on the fence.
About the minimum wage, estate tax issue. Just talked to his office. He can't make up his mind. I gave the aide a piece of my mind.

He thinks he can have it both ways on every issue. I vowed I would not post anything bad about a candidate, but I get so angry when I call his office. He never stays in touch, he never responds.

Cantwell has even made up her mind, but not Bill.

Frist needs two more votes.

1. He's obviously already feeling safe because of Katie Harris
crashing and burning. I almost wish that race in FLA were closer -- might bring out the REAL Democrat in him!

3. Will McBride and LeRoy Collins, Jr....could make him straighten up.
I have hope but not much. Collins' dad was a Dem governor, and he is a good guy.

2. Nelson is a conservative. You can bet he's more for the
elimination of the estate tax than he is for the minimum wage hike.

He's fortunate in his opponent. If he'd had any sort of challenge from anyone less dreadful than Harris, he'd be on his way out.

5. Nelson does officially support repeal of the estate tax.
So, I don't think there's any fence sitting involved.

Maybe I'll call his staff. We just made nice again.

6. Well, good luck. Thanks for calling.
I have tried to make nice, but they already have a mindset. It does not matter what we say, he is really not concerned. His staff is not concerned either.
