Who voted against the tax deal?

How out-of-the-mainstream are the liberals screaming for tax hikes?

Three conservative senators opposed the tax deal (because it resurrects the death tax), and the “no” side still only got 19 votes.

The senators voting against:

Bingaman (D-NM)
Coburn (R-OK)
DeMint (R-SC)
Dorgan (D-ND)
Ensign (R-NV)
Feingold (D-WI)
Gillibrand (D-NY)
Hagan (D-NC)
Harkin (D-IA)
Lautenberg (D-NJ)
Leahy (D-VT)
Levin (D-MI)
Merkley (D-OR)
Sanders (I-VT)
Sessions (R-AL)
Udall (D-CO)
Udall (D-NM)
Voinovich (R-OH)
Wyden (D-OR)

In the case of Gillibrand, who faces re-election in 2012, it appears that she's more worried about a primary challenge than she is about her general election.
