Bailout/rescue 2.0 passes both houses; Bush signs it. They hurry if they have to

    One CSPAN2 graphic says it passed 74-24, the other 74-25. Vote counts may not be final.

    I wonder who abstained?

    Teddy Kennedy would be the first guess, understandably.

    Didn't think about him and his condition. Makes sense.

    Liddy Dole is the only one in a tough race who voted no that I saw on first glance.

    Johnson's up, but he's safe. Also voted no.

    Sessions is up for reelection, but faces lightweight competition and voted no.
    I think Levin is up too and he voted yes. Go figure.

    Coleman's in a dogfight, voted aye.

    McConnel's in a tough one, voted aye.

    Stevens is a dead man walking, voted aye.

    Wicker's a fill-in (replaced Trent Lott) facing a special election against a former governor in Mississippi. He voted no.
    But, then again, so did all three of Mississippi's Democratic representatives in the House.

    I have to say, in comparison with the House, the Senate is a bastion of integrity, at least with regards to this bill and electoral politics.

    The votes look to me pretty straight up. Of course, there are a lot more Senators not running or in safe seats, too.

    The politics of all this are kind of fascinating. You've got the far left and the far right voting against it, for totally different reasons, of course. And enough noise from partisans on both sides to scare the House into voting it down. Will be interesting to see if the center comes back.
