Baron Hill -- YES !

Ellsworth and Donnelly are huge disapointments to me.

Ellsworth I kinda expected. Donnelly... I'm kinda surprised by. The Senate vote should be interesting. The RR is really ratcheting up the lies...

In the Senate --- has either Lugar or Bayh indicated how they intend to vote?

A. J. Lopp | May 4, 2007 8:57 AM

Posted too soon. I see Bayh is a co-sponsor, but I'm surprised and disappointed that Lugar hasn't committed to vote in favor.

I just sent him an email, please everyone do the same.
