Vote was 60-39. Both New Jersey senators Frank Lautenberg and Bob Menendez voted yes.
Update: We now know who the missing Republican was, that led to a 60-39 vote instead of 60-40. It was Senator Jim Bunning of Kentucky, who was entitled to vote today, but is not running for re-election after heavy pressure from fellow Republicans to drop out.
Senators Russ Feingold and Bernie Sanders, both lobbied heavily to vote no on deeply imperfect legislation, both voted yes.
Senator Robert Byrd, whose death or injury was wished for by some Republicans this holiday season, was wheeled in and cast his yes vote, adding, This is for my friend Ted Kennedy.
Senator Harry Reid brought the funny, but not on purpose. When the rollcall got to him, he voted loud and clear: No!
The clerk paused, as the room tensed up a little, to let an exhausted Senate Majority Leader catch up with what he just did, and change his vote. Which he did, as everybody in the room cracked up.
I only saw the last minute of the vote. There’s more to say, so consider this an Open Thread.
