CAFTA passes Senate

Big victory for Bush. The final tally was 54-45 with lots of crossover voting; Snowe and Collins both said no. Now it heads for the House and stiffer opposition from textile, manufacturing, and sugar interests. Meanwhile, AP reports that the Department of Labor suppressed its own anti-CAFTA findings, scrubbing information from its website and ordering the contractor who did the work not to discuss it with outsiders.
