Bill Nelson and Dems say no way on drilling

Ten coastal state Senate Democrats - including Florida's Bill Nelson -- say they won't support a climate and energy bill if it permits a big expansion of drilling for offshore oil and natural gas.

The 10 generally are viewed as inclined to vote for a bill to cut the heat-trapping emissions from the use of coal, gas and oil.

Sens. John Kerry, D-Mass., Lindsey Graham, R-S.C., and Joe Lieberman, an independent from Connecticut, are trying to draft bipartisan legislation that is capable of getting the 60 votes needed in the Senate to overcome a filibuster, but they haven't unveiled it.
