Question--Who are the 5 (R) Senators that put Hagel through the filibuster?

The report out of Washington is that there will be an attempt at filibustering Chuck Hagel's nomination.

Assuming all the Dems stay in line, I can count McCain to vote against the filibuster (but against the nomination on the floor vote). What other Republicans have made a public statement that he or she will vote to break the filibuster?

1. Actually McCain says he very well could filibuster:

McCain might support Hagel filibuster

Sen. John McCain (R-Ariz.), who has urged his fellow Republicans not to filibuster the nomination of former Nebraska senator Chuck Hagel for defense secretary, now tells Foreign Policy magazine that he might oppose a vote to end debate on President Obama’s choice to replace Leon Panetta.

2. I have my answer

(1). Cochran (Miss) Yes to break Filibuster Yes on Confirmation

(2). Johans (Neb) Yes to break Filibuster Yes on Confirmation

(3). Collins (ME.) Yes to break Filibuster No on Confirmation

(4). Burr (N.C.) Yes to break filibuster No on Confirmation

(5). Blunt (MO.) Yes to Break Filibuster No on Confirmation

(6). McCain (AZ) Maybe to break Filibuster No on Confirmation

My prediction 61 votes to break Filibuster and 57 votes for Confirmation.

5. Cochran, Johanns, and Collins seem like the only safe bets--I'm going to go with Hatch

and either Murkowski or McLame. Edit to add: since Randy Paul is already holding up Brennan, he's going to look like a tool holding up Hagel too, so watch him.
