  18. John Tanner
  19. Ed Towns
  20. Peter Welch
  1. Robert Brady
  2. Elijah Cummings

  4. Marcia Fudge
  5. Alcee Hastings
  6. Jesse Jackson Jr.
  7. Sheila Jackson-Lee
  8. Kendrick Meek
  9. George Miller
  10. Jerold Nadler

I’m betting we’ve got 37 instead of 36. Jim Cooper? I’ll personally spend the next year and a half writing about how he voted for $108 billion in European bank bailouts and $4 billion in "Cash for Clunkers" when he won’t get a dime for local Nashville hospitals in African American communities in his district.

After the Grijalva vote switch trial balloon this morning (which was quickly shot down), it looks like several people may have been let off the reservation. Which indicates that the rumors we’re hearing about Rahm Emanuel cutting deals with Republicans to go easy on them in the 2010 elections in exchange for votes may be true.

Which, if true, means we held progressive votes. And we won.

But we’re not there yet.  Keep calling….
