      But it's likely that we'll need more than just one of those people, especially if Nelson or Lincoln or Landrieu don't vote with us.  Moreover, we need them at other times on other issues, for example the financial reg bill earlier this month.

      And we'll certainly need multiple votes from them if we want to get anything done after November.  

      You can't just shut down government, quit governing, quit working with the other guys because you want to try and ensure a win next election, or the one after that.  That's what the republicans decided to do at the outset of this administration, and I think every single one of us recognizes it as something that is incredibly damaging to the country.
