Pelosi's Big Win...and the GOP's Too

With the passage of the Democrats' Iraq war resolution, Speaker Nancy Pelosi (Calif.) achieved her most symbolic victory so far in the 110th Congress.

However, House Republicans are claiming a moral victory, as just 17 members of their conference joined Democrats to approve the resolution, which expresses the House's disapproval of the president's plans to send more troops to Iraq.

Just two Democrats, Reps. Jim Marshall (Ga.)and Gene Taylor (Miss.), voted with Republicans.

Here are the 17 Republicans who voted with the Democrats:

Mike Castle (Del.)
Howard Coble (N.C.)
Tom Davis (Va.)
John Duncan (Tenn.)
Phil English (Pa.)
Wayne Gilchrest (Md.)
Bob Ingles (S.C.)
Tim Johnson (Ill.)
Walter Jones (N.C.)
Ric Keller (Fla.)
Mark Kirk (Ill.)
Steve LaTourette (Ohio)
Ron Paul (Texas)
Tom Petri (Wisc.)
Jim Ramstad (Minn.)
Fred Upton (Mich.)
James Walsh (N.Y.)

Here's the full vote breakdown.
