Vote Hunt: There could be a lot of vote-hunting going on now. This AP story suggests that the coalition might be hunting for a few more votes to overturn the Dorgan amendment. Meanwhile, Malkin (who's liveblogging the Senate debate) suggests that it's a hunt for 41 votes to sustain a filibuster on the part of opponents of the bill.
Both Reid and McConnell seem to be holding to their roles: Reid says he wants cloture, and McConnell wants to bring up more amendments. At the moment, McConnell says he will oppose cloture until more amendments are discussed.
