Barbara Morrill at Daily Kos urges readers to keep up pressure on key Democratic votes:
Senate Majority Leader Harry Reid, from the floor of the Senate earlier this evening:
I’m going to file cloture tonight on the DREAM Act. We’ll have a cloture vote on that Saturday morning fairly early. We’re going to have a cloture vote tonight on don’t ask, don’t tell — not a cloture vote. I’m going to file cloture on it tonight. So those will be sequenced for Saturday or whenever we get to them.
Update: As you know, getting 60 votes for cloture on the DREAM Act is going to be a nail biter. Please take a few minutes and call these Democratic Senators who are leaning no or have said they’ll vote against it:
