GOP wins again, who were 5 traitor Dems?

Five traitorous pig "Democrats" voted down democratic efforts to set timetable into law in the senate today.  But I cannot find anywhere who the 5 Democrats are who voted with Bush and his ilk.

Any help?  Here's the article:

Heh
The answer is Conrad, Lieberman, Nelson, Nelson, and Pryor.  Let the floggings commence, I guess, because these guys are obviously much worse human beings than the 53 Republicans who voted no.

I'm tired of DINO's!
I can understand Nelson from Nebraska since it's such a red state. I think Conrad and Pryor should be able to withstand any conservative backlash.  Besides the war is frankly as unpopular now in many red states as in blue ones.

But Lieberman is beyond disgusting.  I can't believe that no one challenges him in the Connecticut primary.

I'm also disgusted that GOP "moderates" keep supporting this war.

Conrad
is especially disheartening because he is the only one on this list who voted against the war.  I guess he is feeling the heat of '06 early.

What is frustrating...
What is frustrating about it is the Republicans stuck together even though we know some wanted to vote the other way but the Democrats -- once again -- were unable to maintain any party loyalty.

Im a Proud Democrat Today
Honestly, my read on this vote is entirely different.  I am VERY proud of the fact that we got 40 votes for a measure forcing Bush to create a timetable to get out.

Look how far we have come.  A month or two ago, Feingold was the lone Senator looking for a timetable.  Now we have 39 out of 44 Democrats (plus Jeffords I believe) forcing Bush to create a timetable to get out.  That's great progress.  OF COURSE Lieberman and some of the others opposed.  Im just very proud that so many Dems went on record as advocating a timed withdrawal.  Even Clinton, who I greatly dislike, deserves credit for this vote.

38 plus Jeffords.  Corzine did not vote.  Chaffee voted with us, the only GOPer to do so.  The ladies from Maine once again went as a bloc with Bush.  Pretty good.

WE won
Before you get all worked up, listen to what I have to say.

Harry Reid dropped another bomb on the Senate. If not for the plan he released yesterday, the Senate would not even be talking about this. John Warner, the wise old man that he truly is, saw the handwriting on the wall and knew Republicans had to jump onto the train before it ran them over. So, drafted his own version so the Republicans can have some cover. As this diary mantions, their version passed. Boo hoo we lost that vote. Sob. Sob. Sob. *actor takes the bow. Exit stage left

Behind the curtain, Director Harry Reid lights a big, fat celebratory cigar. Why, you ask? Because even though his plan did not pass, THE REPUBLICAN SENATE, AT ODDS WITH THE WHITE HOUSE, IS ON RECORD IN FAVOR OF WITHRDRAWEL. Harry just drove another big, fat wedge between the White House and the Senate. I promise you, somewhere in that undisclosed location, Cheney is cursing and swearing.

This will be the end for Linc Chafee
He can not be let off the the hook for this.  We must tie this around his neck and drag him to defeat.
