HOw soon they flip once they get elected. When campaigning in Colorado Ken Salazar said he favored letting Bush's nominees have an up and down vote.
Mr. Salazar pledged during an interview with the Rocky Mountain News in Denver that he would not take part in the filibusters of judicial nominees.
"In a pre-election interview with the News editorial board, Sen.-elect Ken Salazar said he favored an up-or-down vote in the full Senate on judicial nominations," the paper's editorial board wrote Nov. 8. "We hope he sticks with that position even if his Democratic colleagues-to-be lean on him, as they are almost certain to do."
Now, he's wobbling and his spokesman is hinting that Salazar hasn't decided yet if he'll vote for a vote to be held on Bush's nominees. Colorado voters need to let their new senator know where they stand.
