The White House scored a win Thursday on Capitol Hill after a moderate Senate Democrat broke with his party to restore funding for Vice President Dick Cheney's office.
The 15-14 vote in the Senate Appropriations Committee came after the House last month narrowly rejected a companion bid to punish Cheney in a continuing battle over whether he is complying with national security disclosure rules.
Sen. Ben Nelson, D-Neb., switched his position from a subcommittee vote Tuesday.
I think Sen. Nelson deserves a piece of all of our minds...for crying out loud, how tiresome to see the lack of spine in these guys.
UPDATE: TPM has a story on yet another spineless vote that Nelson is likely to make.
