Sense of the Senate Vote On Cloture In Trouble?
Motion Fails: 52-44, The DREAM Is Dead

Update: Cloture fails 52-44.

Update: White House Opposed the Bill: I had wondered why I hadn't heard from Bush on this. It seems the Administration was against this particular amnesty, though I don't see any mention of a veto threat.

Bush has signed a lot of legislation he claimed to have objected to, eh?


Byron Dorgan, a Democrat, voted against the measure, and the Republicans seem to be holding firm, so it looks like this vote is failing.

I don't have a count. Just basing it on how the swing votes are running.

Sununu, another squish, also voted No. As did Burr, McConnell, Stevens, and other Republicans we had to lobby last time 'round.

Spector No. He was an Amnestia last time, wasn't he?

From Michelle, these jagoffs voted Aye: Hagel, Hatch, Hutchison, Lugar, Martinez, and Collins. And Graham, of course.

That's a lot. On the other hand we have Claire McCaskill voting No.

Warner a "No" too.


Snowe, Lott, aye.

Uh-oh. We're losing a lot of squishes. Too many to be overcome by a few Democratic votes.

Domenici, no.
