More Stimulus Drama

Last night, Obama railed against Republicans, defining them as obstructionists and accusing them of adhering to “the failed policies and politics of the past” (if I hear that line one more time, I think I am going to lose my lunch).  Well, apparently the obstructionists may have some Democrat company.  Sen. Kay Hagan (D-NC) is reportedly wavering against the bill, and Sen. Diane Feinstein announced on the floor that she “reserves the right to vote against this bill” which will not, she says, create jobs (notice how taken aback Gibbs is when asked about Feinstein’s comments):

There are also rumors that Nelson and Webb may be wavering as well, hopefully again making this a bi-partisan vote against this bill.  Reid appears to now be moving to a vote, so it all may come down to tonight.

Update: Apparently, a few RINOs have caved and have reached a tentative compromise, led by Collins and Specter.

Update 2: Looks like a done deal, but they may need Kennedy on the floor to get to the needed 60 votes.  Kennedy’s been in Florida recovering in recent weeks after a seizure on Inauguration Day.
