    Yes 207

    yeah but what's going on now is that the "whips" are going round to the no voters trying to convince them to change the vote, the vote is being kept closed until enough yes votes are ready.. thats not democracy in my view.. the vote has been called, so accept it

    Good negotiation skills. Bush knows they'll change their mind if he stumps up enough oil shares.
