Lindsey Graham Caves on Cap -n-Tax?

"...Prospects for climate-change legislation in Congress improved on Sunday when a Republican senator broke ranks with his party to outline a compromise with a leading Democrat on the issue.

Republican Senator Lindsey Graham and Democratic Senator John Kerry wrote in an opinion piece in The New York Times that they believed they could pick up enough support to pass a wide-ranging bill to limit carbon emissions.

"We refuse to accept the argument that the United States cannot lead the world in addressing global climate change," Graham and Kerry wrote. "We are also convinced that we have found both a framework for climate legislation to pass Congress and the blueprint for a clean-energy future."

Graham is one of a few dozen fence-sitters whom Kerry and Democrat Barbara Boxer have been courting in order to amass the 60 votes needed for passage in the 100-member Senate..."source)

As far as I can see, there is nothing in his voting record that would have indicated he would break ranks and go over to the dark side on this proposed Cap & Trade bill.

Did Graham happen to catch the news during any of the tea party coverage? Tons of the signs reflected the views of HIS CONSTITUENTS when it comes to Cap and Tax... Why are the Republicans in Congress so incredibly CLUELESS?!
