Scott Brown a "No" and Susan Collins a "Yes" on DADT Repeal

The Boston Globe reports that Senator Scott Brown will vote against a repeal of Don't Ask, Don't Tell on Thursday:
But the AP reports that Senator Susan Collins will vote in favor of repeal.
There are 28 senators on the Armed Services Committee (16 Democrats and 14 Republicans). So, if Collins supports repeal and all other Republicans oppose it (which seems likely), the Democrats can afford two "no" votes and and still pass it out of committee with 15 votes.
Jim Webb, Ben Nelson, and Robert Byrd seem like potential Democratic "no" votes, but we'll just have to wait and see how it all works out on Thursday.
