'Tweets' show changing view of 'cash-for-clunkers' debate

Last week, Sen. Claire McCaskill, D-Mo., was adamant about the "cash for clunkers" program. She tweeted, "I will vote no on any extension of Cash for Clunkers program." But as the program's popularity became clearer, McCaskill's line became fuzzier. On Monday, she'd modified her pledge to "no NEW money" and suggested she "may support it," if the money's already been part of the stimulus program.
