      With his vote on the Bush Tax cut extension, so I don't think we have to worry too much about him.

      Andrews had won re-election, unfortunately, so hopefully he'll back down from his pledge.

      Chandler lost re-election, so if we end up having to go off the cliff for a better deal positioning, he could be a problem.

      Republicans are far more socialist than Democrats. Just because they want to redistribute the wealth upwards does not make it any better.

      Wikipedia is out of date man.  Nelson retired, Chandler lost, and Andrews was the only one reelected.  It is possible I was off by one.  However, at this point that means 214 to 221, we still have majority.
