31. Would Gephardt's vote have made ANY difference?
Edited on Sat Jul-12-03 03:37 PM by WhoCountsTheVotes
This really bothers me, as someone who is pretty pro-Gephardt, even though he's not my first choice (Kucinich of course!).

But would his vote have made a difference? Let's not be naive about politics, missing votes is common and often a tactic.

If Gephardt's vote would have prevented it from passing, then he screwed up big time, and since he's a long time politician with many compromises and bad choices, he can't afford many more screw-ups.

I'm withholding judgement until I see the vote count.

Edited for really bad spelling errors. Probably missed a few.
