The Political Animal points out that Norm Coleman’s Senate office is trying really hard to re-package the Senator and portray him as an "independent Republican."
The same Norm Coleman who voted with the President 98% of the time during his first year in office?
The same Norm Coleman who the Bush campaign described as "one of the party’s most effective spokesmen and advocate for the President’s message?"
The same Norm Coleman who said George Bush was part of "God’s answer?"
Coleman can choose to describe himself as a "Clinton Democrat," a Republican, an independent Republican, a Democrat, a Bush Republican, or whatever else he sees as the most popular label of the day – but his Senate record is one of loyalty to the Bush Administration.
Can we expect more attempts by Coleman to retreat from his record?
