RI's Chafee - Better Safe Than Sorry?

Jayson at Polipundit makes the case for the White House backing Lincoln Chafee for reelection.

Chafee votes for cloture on every bill and every appointment, and his voting record on the merits is very similar to that of putative “conservative Democrat” {cough} Ben Nelson of Nebraska. But a Rhode Island Democrat taking over that seat would be an automatic loss of one net vote – on every issue – to the Boxer/Kennedy/Leahy/Kerry wing of the MediaCrat Party.
I'm still not 100% convinced but - when you consider what may be at stake in the Senate - it's hard to argue against it. As he says: "this isn't an ideal world".
