Kraske: Health care vote shows Skelton is running scared

In his latest column for the Kansas City Star, Steve Kraske suggests that Fourth District Congressman Ike Skelton's vote against the Democratic health care proposal is a sign he is running scared:

The recent House vote on health care reform said one thing very clearly: 17-term Democratic Congressman Ike Skelton of Missouri is scared silly.

Six-term Democratic Congressman Dennis Moore, who has spent years running for his political life, is feeling a little more confident.

Almost inexplicably for a veteran member in House leadership, Skelton voted no on his party’s chief domestic priority while Moore supported it.
