We thought we had it good when Specter came out against card check. Now, Politico is reporting that Sen. Blanche Lincoln (D-Ark.) has voiced her opposition as well. That would put the controversial legislation not one, but two solid votes away from passage - during this Congress, at least. When 2010 hits, it's entirely possible that the Dems could grab a few more seats and card check would be back on the table again.

For the time being, though, Lincoln is a firm opponent of the bill.
“I cannot support that bill,” Lincoln said, according to Arkansas Business. “Cannot support that bill in its current form. Cannot support and will not support moving it forward in its current form.”
Let's just hope the Dems don't put reconciliation on the table for card check as well as health care...
