Senate's Iraq vote likely to come down to the wire (ANNE FLAHERTY, March 27, 2007, Associated Press)

An upcoming Senate vote on the Iraq war could come down to just one or two votes, testing Democratic unity on a proposal to begin bringing combat troops home.

Democratic Sens. Mark Pryor and Ben Nelson are expected to deliver the critical votes this week, when members decide whether to uphold legislation that orders some troops home right away, with the goal of ending combat missions by March 31, 2008.

The real testing is of the Senator from CT.

Unfortunately I can too easily see Joe, like the Lewinsky issue, give a great speech but then vote against Bush. But given that it barely passed the House and probably will barely pass the Senate it isn't going to get past a veto anyway.

Get rid of the Chafees and Jeffords, and a Hagel takes their place. Is this some sort of Stupid Party tradition?

Ok - Dems voted overwhelmingly against Lieberman. Does Lieberman switch or does he meekly go back to his seat with the Dems?
