The Corner

The Real Switcheroo?

In an email, Greg Pollowitz of Sixers calls attention to this item on TNR’s The Plank:

LINC BATS HIS EYELASHES:

I have a friend in Rhode Island–a Democrat torn between his affections for Lincoln Chafee and his desire to make Harry Reid majority leader. Over the weekend, my friend attended a Chafee event and cornered the senator. Now, my friend doesn’t have a personal relationship with Chafee, but he put the question bluntly to him: Why should I stick with you in a race with so many national implications? Chafee pulled my friend aside, lowered his voice, and told him that he might not be a Republican for much longer.

This is just one report. Take it for whatever its worth.
