Alito Vote Coming Soon

Here's what Byron York at The Corner has to say...
From a Senate source: It is "likely" that the Republican leadership will file a cloture motion tomorrow on the Alito nomination, which would mean a cloture vote could be held on Monday, followed -- assuming there is no Democratic filibuster -- by an up-or-down vote on the nomination.
Vote on Monday, swearing in on Monday night, celebration at the State of the Union address Tuesday. Sounds like a plan.

EDIT: It's a little after 12:30 and the C-SPAN tally has the Alito vote at 53-27. If my poor eyesight can read these names properly, Chafee, Collins, Snowe, and Stevens are the only Republican senators who haven't committed yet.
