Clip 'n' Save!
The November election is a long ways away. So, here: I made you a little cheatsheet!
P.s. I TOLD YOU FOOLS TO VOTE DODD!

Cantwell (D-WA), Yea
Murray (D-WA), Yea
Go team Washington State!
Hope you don't mind, but I'm borrowing this image for posting on my site (with full credit to you, of course)
It's too perfect not to share.
Hallelujah brother Matthew, nice job spreading the word.
One question: does Clinton's not voting qualify as voting nay, effectively?
I am a lurker who is presently de-lurking. Your site is always awesome, Matthew. Thank you for the intermittent, extreme belly laughs, dude.
I notice that Obama (D-IL) is not on that list. My excitement cannot be effectively contained, yo! Just another reason for the 10th month of the year to be renamed BARACK-TOBER. (See: YouTube, Obama giving the Top 10 list on Letterman. Good stuff.)
If Hillary gets the Democratic nomination, I think I will actually cry.
Alright, back to lurking. Until I feel the need to comment again, that is. Happy Barack Kicks Hillary's Ass in the Potomac Primaries Day!
Steph, per the Washington Post:
Seventeen Democrats and one independent joined 49 Republicans in voting against the Dodd-Feingold amendment. Among those voting with the majority was Sen. John McCain (R-Ariz.), the leading candidate for the GOP presidential nomination. Sen. Barack Obama (D-Ill.), who is battling for the Democratic nomination, voted in favor of the amendment. His chief rival, Sen. Hillary Rodham Clinton (D-N.Y.), did not vote.
YAY, Barack! I heart him. Unless I completely read your comment wrong, in which case: I clearly need to have a talk with My Main Presidential Man.
I tried, but my monitor did not respond kindly to stabbing it with scissors.
That's pretty cool, even if it is a triple negative.
Don't just blame these useless people. How about getting better Democrats in the leadership positions? Replace Reid, Durban, Pelosi, and Hoyer with people who will get the job done. The same thing goes for ineffective committee chair persons (e.g. Jello Jay). After we elect a Democratic president, why don�t we roll out Democratic Leadership 2.0?
Stupid Nelson. This is what happens when your only opposition in the election is Katharine Harris.
Lol...so what good is having a majority (albeit a slight and highly technical one) if you can't use it because even in your own party you can't come to an agreement.
Dems seem to have a bit of a problem with identity at the moment.
I'm with you, Matt. Just don't forget to re-post this in 2010, when some of the Senators are actually up for re-election.
Tried to submit to reddit, but someone beat me to it. DY readers, upmod!
It's weird having such an awesome senator like Feingold here in WI, and yet even Kohl, our other one, doesn't vote for his bill. Way to go, WI solidarity.
"failed to oppose immunity"
I'm still trying to work out what that means they support. I'm guessing that they're pro-bad stuff and against good stuff, right?
You're unlikely to have an opportunity to not vote for Feinstein -- her term expires in 2012, when she turns 79, I think. So now she's free of electoral restraint, and we get to find out just exactly who she is.
Not lookin' good, is it?
Here are the Dem/Ind senators who didn't vote for the Dodd amendment by year they are up for re-election (including Lieberman):
I should add: perhaps you could redo your cheatsheet in reverse-year order so people could tear off each election year as they pass. All four Democrats up for re-election in 2008 are running again, with the West Virginia Democratic primary on May 13 and the South Dakota primaries on June 3 (Arkansas and Lousiana's primaries have been held on February 5).
