In her re-election bid, Sen. Claire McCaskill, D-Mo, points to her early opposition to climate change hoax legislation

McCaskill in the middle: centrist or opportunist?

But in an interview, McCaskill argued that she's the same centrist Democrat that she has been during the first five years of her Senate term, and her record of frequently breaking with her party largely bears that out.

She pointed to her vote in 2007 to derail immigration reform, her opposition as early as 2008 to climate change legislation, and her efforts to ban earmarks — pet spending projects inserted in legislation — that started soon after she arrived in Washington.

I wonder if in her desperation, she comes out as a "denier".
Breaking orthodoxy with the "tolerant" bunch would be such a heresy, that I can't imagine it occurring.
The progressives are likely to burn her at the stake.
