The Vote We've Been Waiting For

The Senate has invoked cloture, by a vote of 72-25, ending the debate on Judge Alito.

This clears the way for an up-or-down vote on Alito's confirmation tomorrow morning. Which means that by noon tomorrow, Judge Alito will be Justice Alito of the Supreme Court, even without Lincoln Chafee.
