Good Job, Mark Pryor!

Kudos goes to Senator Mark Pryor! He broke Democratic ranks and joined the Republicans in defeating a U.S. surrender by March 2008. Republicans allow the votes to go forward. They wanted to because they were eager to highlight just how wrong it was. Harry Reid took the bait warning,
"They may wind up with a surprise," Reid, told reporters. "More Republicans than they think may wind up being in favor of this."

Surprise, surprise! The vote was 50-48 against. Only one Republican voted for it and three Democrats broke ranks and voted against the resolution: Connecticut's Joseph Lieberman, Nebraska's Ben Nelson and Arkansas's Mark Pryor. Way to go Mark!
