You can guess how Lieberman voted.

They don't -- and won't -- have the votes to withstand the president's promised veto, but Senate Democrats just passed a supplemental funding bill for Iraq that includes a deadline for the withdrawal of U.S. troops. The final vote was 51-47. Republicans Chuck Hagel and Gordon Smith crossed over to vote with the Democrats. Democrat Mark Pryor stuck with his party this time, even though he prefers a "secret" withdrawal plan. Joe Lieberman? Well, you can guess how he voted.
