Herseth Sandlin Feeling Blue

Well, well:

Democratic Rep. Stephanie Herseth Sandlin of South Dakota says she will not vote for a bill that would extend unemployment benefits and some tax breaks because it would increase deficit spending.

Is this from principle or a desire to be re-elected in the fall? We may never know, but if enough of her fellows start feeling blue then perhaps this will not happen at all–and that would be a very good thing.
