Everybody is trying to count votes. The AP sniffs out 10 Dems who say they are open to switching their votes in favor of reform.

Ten House Democrats say they have not ruled out the possibility of switching their earlier “no” votes to “yes” on the big health care overhaul. That’s giving Democrats a glimmer of hope in the face of unyielding Republican opposition. The House members commented in interviews Monday with The Associated Press.

“Not ruled out” doesn’t mean a switch is likely. The New York Times has a handy-dandy chart breaking down the various Democratic “no” votes in the House. Of note: 31 of the 39 hail from districts won by McCain in 2008, many of which are vulnerable in November.
