Detainee vote do-over

From NBC's Mike Viqueira
The House Judiciary Committee has reversed itself after Republican no-shows on the initial vote on President Bush's detainee measure turned up for a re-vote and supported the measure. Rep. Louie Gohmert was one of the Republicans who initially voted "nay," but that turned out to be a parliamentary ploy to buy time until absent Republicans could be rounded up -- anyone voting against a measure can bring it back up for a re-vote. Long story short, the House measure squeaked out of the committee by a vote of 20-19. Barring any further developments, the measure heads to the full House for a floor vote next week.
