Interesting from Specter's speech on the floor: 23 Senators changed their votes on the Baucus amendment. This amendment was the amendment that, in DeMint's words, "derailed the train" of part of Reid's "clay pigeon" strategy. While Reid tabled other amendments, he couldn't table Baucus's, so the Senate is, as Reid said, still "stuck" on considering and, potentially debating, this amendment while it considers this bill.
