Lincoln in the limelight UPDATE

Posted By on Wed, Apr 21, 2010 at 6:59 AM

I'll believe it when I see it -- Republican support for Wall Street reform legislation. We've been through this dance with Olympia Snowe before. To date, the final chorus has always been NO!

But, maybe. And, if so, who'll be at the center of tough new regulation of the Wall Street robber barons? None other than Sen. Blanche Lincoln. The link above says she expects to move the bill out of committee today.

UPDATE: One Republican, Chuck Grassley, voted for the bill when it came out of committee this morning.
