Lieberman-Kyl’s Iran amendment passes

By a vote 76-22, the Senate passed the Lieberman-Kyl amendment, which threatens to “combat, contain and [stop]” Iran via “military instruments.” Sen. Jim Webb (D-VA) called the amendment “Cheney’s fondest pipe dream” and said it could “read as a backdoor method of gaining Congressional validation for military action.”
Who were the 22?
Biden (D-DE), Bingaman (D-NM),Boxer (D-CA), Brown (D-OH), Byrd (D-WV), Cantwell (D-WA), Dodd (D-CT),Feingold (D-WI),Hagel (R-NE), Harkin (D-IA),Inouye (D-HI),Kennedy (D-MA), Kerry (D-MA),Klobuchar (D-MN), Leahy (D-VT),Lincoln (D-AR),Lugar (R-IN),McCaskill (D-MO),Sanders (I-VT),Tester (D-MT),Webb (D-VA), Wyden (D-OR)
Sens. John McCain (R-AZ) and Barack Obama (D-IL) didn’t vote.
In looking at the list and seeing how some candidates voted - shame on you Hillary and Barack. Crazy to vote in the affirmative. And too important to not vote.
