60-39 to Proceed

The Senate has voted to invoke cloture to proceed to debate Senator Harry Reid's health care reform proposal.

The debate itself will likely take place beginning November 30th. All Democrats and Independents voted in the affirmative and all present Republicans voted in the negative. I did not catch who the 40th Republican that missed the vote was, but I will report it as soon as the Senate posts the roll call results. Other than the one GOP absence, this vote went exactly as I projected it would.
