"Yesterday only 14 Democrats had the courage to face their fears of David Broder, Bill O'Reilly, Tim Russert, and Karl Rove saying mean things about them. Among Senate Democrats, only Boxer, Clinton, Dodd, Feingold, Kennedy, Kerry, Leahy, Obama, Whitehouse, and Wyden, plus Bernie Sanders, voted against giving President 28% a blank check -- and I don't count Obama's and Clinton's votes as acts of courage, because they voted AFTER the measure already had enough votes to pass."
