Could Melissa Bean Flip to Republican in the Next Congress?
I'm normally one of the first people to defend Melissa Bean, a Democrat from the fairly conservative 8th district of IL, and one of the few vulnerable Democratic incumbents in the House, from attacks on the left, but this made me cringe.

I heard a radio program this evening that was interviewing her challenger David McSweeney and the subject came up that Bean has not totally ruled out supporting Hastert for Speaker in a closely divided Congress.

The pundits spent several minutes talking about this.

Has anyone else heard this, or were they just making it up?

1. I've never heard that before
And after the way he handled Foley, I highly doubt she would support Hastert.

2. Naaah! Haven't you heard? Democrats are "in" now
Nobody wants to admit they're a Repug.
