Democrat Senator: Maybe I’ll Vote for Obama, Maybe I Won’t

So one of the great “undecided voters” is a Democrat in the Senate? Sen. Joe Manchin just cost himself any chance he had of speaking at the DNC convention this year:
Sen. Joe Manchin, D-W.Va., who has done more than any other Democrat up for reelection this year to distance himself from President Obama, said he does not know if he will vote for Obama or presumptive GOP nominee Mitt Romney in November.
“I’ll look at the options,” Manchin said this week. The last three years “have made it pretty rough” for his state, he said.
“I am just waiting for it to play out. I am not jumping in one way or another,” Manchin said. “I’m worried about me. I’ve said it’s not a team sport. You need to go out and work for yourself.”
Sen. Manchin, the Democratic Senate Campaign Committee would like to have a word.
