Ben Nelson to Ag?
Taegan Goddard has CNN relating word that Karl Rove has asked Democrat Senator Ben Nelson of Nebraska if he is interested in becoming the President's new AG secretary.
Writing Thursday in NRO, GOP pollster Robert Moran sez that Nelson is someone "who[m] I believe will switch parties."
Nebraska is a Republican State, and the GOP are said to be targeting Nelson in 2006 with popular Republican Governor Mike Johanns if Nelson sticks around the Senate and decides to seek reelection. If Nelson joins the President's cabinet, that same Johanns will appoint Nelson's successor, and the GOP inches closer to 60. As has been pointed out here and elsewhere, the Republicans already have their largest Senate majority since… well, since Herbert Hoover.
