Allow a password change to only specific accounts

Hi folks, 
Kind of an unusual type change here.

I want to be able to allow a group to only change passwords for user
accounts that begin with the letters cdp and cmk. So far I haven/t figured
it out.

I've tried things like:

Cmnd_Alias      ACCTS=/usr/sbin/usermod -D,/usr/bin/passwd c*

Cmnd_Alias      ACCTS=/usr/sbin/usermod -D,/usr/bin/passwd [c][d][p]*

Cmnd_Alias      ACCTS=/usr/sbin/usermod -D,/usr/bin/passwd c*?

but sudo come back requesting the password and will let me change the
password for any account that I specify.

Any Ideas?
