Now; look into the crystal ball. How many? Fillibuster? Who are the five dem's who break it? Or does it get broke?
My whip report says 58 votes going in, maybe 62. IF dem leadership says fillibuster, we are at the breakpoint to get the 5 we need to cross over. But, the democratic leadership in the senate is in the weakest position it's been in as far back as I recall. And I can think of no less than 4 Dem senators who don't want to support a filli here (Ben Nelson for one)and then have to go home and try to get re-elected next fall.
