    Warner, McCain, and Graham are three key votes.

      2 of the 3 votes are sure votes against the bill: Warner & Graham.  

      Warner is 80 and doesn't take much guff; he was unwilling to support Ollie North when North unsuccessfully ran for the Senate as the Republican candidate in Virginia.  Warner endorsed Marshall Coleman, a Republican who ran as an independent, instead of North.  Plus he survived a marriage to Liz Taylor.  That's got to count for something :-)

      Graham has JAG experience during the Gulf War.  He's very supportive of JAGs.

      I'm betting $20 McCain flips like a coin and leaves Warner & Graham in the lurch.
