Dodd may not have the votes

It appears that Dodd needs Sen. Byrd's vote to pass his bill. It doesn't look like he will have it before July 4th. If Byrd dies or resigns, Gov. Munchin will name a (Democratic) successor, who would presumably vote for the bill. If Byrd neither dies nor resigns, Dodd will need to go back to the conference room.

It was just reported that Scott Brown has signaled Dodd doesn't have his vote either! Without Byrd and Scott, Dodd is two votes short of cloture.
