Casey Comes Through

Throughout the 2006 campaign, many argued that Bob Casey, Jr. would say one thing on the campaign trail and do another when he got to Washington.  On no issue was this point more emphasized, especially to me, than on embryonic stem-cell research.  Now with his reelection six years away, Casey, Jr. has the chance to do what he thinks is right.  Apparently, that means voting against expanding federal funding for embryonic stem-cell research.  Those who said that Junior Casey would fold to political pressure on this issue owe him a helluva an apology, as it appears that he will stand up against strong pressure from his party leadership to do the right thing.  Hopefully this is a sign of things to come from the freshman.
