Default Financial Reform Bill vote

With the vote in the Senate expected to be a little over a week away, anyone want to make any predictions on what the final vote on the Bill in the Senate will be? Will any Democrats vote no? Will any Republicans vote in favor? if so who?

Basically, I think the GOP will go for filibuster #51 on this puppy. Some GOPers are for the bill, but very few. I think it will go pretty much party line, like most of the legislation these last 18 months.

Pathetic.

I don't see the GOP really trying to stop this, they will try to get a little hay from some aspects, like "putting the public on the hook" where it doesn't exist, but there will be several Repubs that will vote for it, after the rhetoric is used up. Financial Reform will be another Obama win.
