Rejoice! Discrimination is kept out of the Constitution.

The Hate Amendment was defeated 48-50. The following "leaders" have some explaining to do:

Alexander (R-TN)
Allard (R-CO)
Allen (R-VA)
Bennett (R-UT)
Bond (R-MO)
Brownback (R-KS)
Bunning (R-KY)
Burns (R-MT)
Byrd (D-WV)
Chambliss (R-GA)
Cochran (R-MS)
Coleman (R-MN)
Cornyn (R-TX)
Craig (R-ID)
Crapo (R-ID)
DeWine (R-OH)
Dole (R-NC)
Domenici (R-NM)
Ensign (R-NV)
Enzi (R-WY)
Fitzgerald (R-IL)
Frist (R-TN)
Graham (R-SC)
Grassley (R-IA)
Gregg (R-NH)
Hagel (R-NE)
Hatch (R-UT)
Hutchison (R-TX)
Inhofe (R-OK)
Kyl (R-AZ)
Lott (R-MS)
Lugar (R-IN)
McConnell (R-KY)
Miller (D-GA)
Murkowski (R-AK)
Nelson (D-NE)
Nickles (R-OK)
Roberts (R-KS)
Santorum (R-PA)
Sessions (R-AL)
Shelby (R-AL)
Smith (R-OR)
Specter (R-PA)
Stevens (R-AK)
Talent (R-MO)
Thomas (R-WY)
Voinovich (R-OH)
Warner (R-VA)

Looks like it was all RePugnicans besides Zell Miller (D-GA) (a DINO - Dem In Name Only), Byrd who is old school, and Nelson from NE. Good to see our caucus held together.

On the flipside, respect is due to Campbell, Chafee, Collins, McCain, Snowe, and Sununu for breaking ranks and voting for inclusion (with the party of inclusion).

Update
Please don't forget that our fearless standard bearer, John F Kerry, sat this vote out; as did Edwards. Way to take a principled stand guys. So glad to have leaders that stick to their guns.
