Here's another case where you have to wonder why Sen. Blanche Lincoln dithered — well after sufficient Republican support was on the record — to say she'd support the Supreme Court nomination of the president from a party of which she is a nominal member. Particularly since Kagan also happens to be qualified for the job.
Lincoln at least declared on Tuesday. Sen. Mark Pryor acknowledgted his vote for Kagan on Wednesday.
