Jamie, what do you think about it? Either McCain was in favor of this, in which case all arguments saying Obama favors succession are null. Or McCain voted yes when he wasn't even for the bill.. Politics as usual? What do you think?
Organized in caucus beforehand, some Republicans who knew they would kill the cloture vote, cast their ballot in favor of the Akaka Bill because they either served on the Senate Appropriations Committee with Inouye, the co-chair, and wanted to show him the courtesy, or because they’d traded their vote with Inouye in previous sessions.
