Democratic Rep. Emanuel Cleaver said he'll vote for the Senate-passed fiscal cliff avoidance bill.
In a one-minute speech to the House, Cleaver said he spent the holidays shopping, and stumbled across some glue.
He urged his colleagues to glue themselves together "across the aisle" to pass the legislation.
Progress is possible "only if we're sticking together," he said.
Cleaver's vote is an important signal. It suggests there isn't overwhelming liberal opposition to the fiscal dodger.
