"Olympia Snowe is more of a Democrat than some of the Democrats."

Probably not a quote from Ezra Klein's congressional and administration sources that will thrill her caucus mates, but from Ezra's run down of the amendments she's proposed to Baucus's bill... it appears to accurate.

However, I still have a sinking feeling that Dems will give her every amendment she wants and she'll still end up supporting a filibuster and voting against the bill even if they find 60 votes for cloture... thanks to the iron fist of GOP party discipline.

She should just become a Democrat and save me some heartburn... we don't even know what discipline is after all... I mean, Lieberman supported McCain for president for chrissakes and we still kiss his feet.
