Josh Gerstein and Scott Wong have a very good summary that goes along with what we’ve been hearing. In a nutshell, Collins seems to be trying to please both sides. Negotiating with Reid, while using the tax cut as an excuse to placate McConnell, who surely doesn’t want her helping the DADT legislation pass. Depending who you talk to, we’re either screwed or hopeful. I don’t think this is over, and Collins still has a chance to be the hero. Possible vote tomorrow, Thursday, so stay tuned.
