by Jeremy Hooper

*Update: Republicans on right side of history: Sens. Susan Collins (R-Maine), Olympia Snowe (R-Maine), Scott Brown (R-Mass), Lisa Murkowski (R-Alaska) Mark Kirk (R-Ill.) and George Voinovich (R-Ohio).

*Update 2: 63-33 was the cloture vote. Final passage went 65-31, with two more Republicans (Ensign and Burr) flipping.
