The vote in senate on whether to consider the constitutional amendment to define marriage

It needed a 3/5 majority, and the vote was 50-48 with two abstains.

Guess which senators abstained.

Then check.


I can't say I don't understand why Kerry and Edwards abstained. I mean, if you were trying not to piss off a tumultuous middle, would you vote, knowing the votes required and knowing who was on your side?

Sorta lame, but at this point I'd rather they didn't self sabotage over pride and strict principles. Strategy is acceptable.
