Senate blocks attempt to allow ANWR drilling

CNN via The CultureGhost. Really cool photo of Stevens looking like he's ready to blow a gasket!

It was a stinging defeat for Sen. Ted Stevens, R-Alaska, one of the Senate's most powerful members, who had hoped to garner more votes by forcing senators to choose between supporting the drilling measure, or risking the political fallout from voting against money for the troops and hurricane victims.

Instead, Stevens found himself a few votes shy of getting his wish.

Wish in one hand...
