48. Votes for cloture
Baucus, Bingaman, Nelson of FLa, (Chafee-R), Conrad, Dorgan, Inouye, Johnson, Rockefeller, Salazar, Lincoln of AR, Lieberman, Cantwell, (Snowe-R), Kohl, (Reid just changed his mind to the good side, but he's a sheep, weak and not deserving of being the Dem senator minority leader)

Their votes are worthless, in my view. My senators, Durbin and Obama, voted no to cloture.

Shame on these folks. I will not contribute one fu**in' dime to the Dem Senate Re-election funds. I'm happy to tell my favorite former senator, John Edwards, why I cannot donate. These folks are turncoats. I respect them in the sense that they have to vote what their constituents tell them, but I also think they are not leaders in convincing folks what matters: our Constitution and our Bill of Rights.

Now the rest is just procedures. I'm very disappointed, and Bush gets another victory to put on his SOTU speech. The American People, especially the little guy, lose.
