Ben Nelson Talking Like a Conservative?


Nebraska Senator Ben Nelson, the Democrat made infamous by the treacherous “Cornhusker Kickback” deal to force ObamaCare on the American people, has been among Barack Obama’s earliest and most zealous supporters in Washington.

Ben Nelson Faces Tough Reelection Fight In Republican Region

Today, the region is tilting ...

There are no magic wands in American politics
As those who celebrate Christmas take down their decorations, some wonder how much longer the children in their lives will believe in Santa Claus.
