I haven’t been vote-counting, but I do know that Arlen Specter and Ted Stevens have come out in support of Trent Lott as SML. I know there are conservatives out there who believe the principled position is to support Lott. It seems to me, still, that more important principles demand that Lott step down (and I think the political considerations increasingly demand it as well). But rather than rehash all of that, ask yourself how many of the Senators who whill vote for Lott based on anything resembling principle. Certainly not Stevens and Specter.
