13 Strong

This list was taken from an excellent local newspaper blog Campaign Extra, with people pointing this stuff out in the papers, it is truly great to live in a democratic hub like philly.

The Original 13
...with a spine -- Democratic senators who voted against Condoleezza Rice yesterday. Like the United States itself, hopefully they will grow from 13 to 50 over the next couple of years -- and then beyond. (Note: List borrowed from Steve Soto's most excellent blog, Left Coaster.)

Barbara Boxer, D-Calif.
Robert Byrd, D-W.Va.
Edward Kennedy, D-Mass.
John Kerry, D-Mass.
Carl Levin, D-Mich.
James Jeffords, I-Vt.
Jack Reed, D-R.I
Mark Dayton, D-Minn.
Daniel Akaka, D-Hawaii
Evan Bayh, D-Ind.
Frank Lautenberg, D-N.J.
Tom Harkin, D-Iowa
Richard Durbin, D-Ill.

Prominent MIAs: Corzine, Feingold, 2008 wannabes Biden and Clinton.
Democrats who annoy us most these days: Lieberman (duh), Biden, Feinstein.

(a good question really, where was Gov. Corzine)

Thanks for posting this. It's good to see who made the list. I'm still disappointed in Obama's vote, but I'm sure he had his reasons. :-/
