7. Seward was taking a huge chance...
He still had designs on the Presidency...he was the darling of the "left-wing" of the Republican Party, and making that speech hurt him with alot of people...including his own wife...

I haven't analyzed the votes of each of these people...but I do know that Joe Biden voted for the bankruptcy Bill..

Why? Because he is a Senator from Delaware, and virtually every credit card company is based in his state, and is a large employer of his constituents. He voted partially because it represented the interests of his constituents, and partially for his own political viability. That is always gonna be the case.

Does that mean Joe Biden wouldn't work for Health Care reform...no!
