Alito's confirmation vote scheduled for today.

It's yet another election Tuesday here in Northern Virginia, this time a special election to fill the vacant seat of our State Senator. As is usual with events like this, it's raining, cold, and dreary outside. While the weather has never once been sufficient to deter me from getting to the poles - today will be no different - it appears to be a big deal to some.

It won't be to the Senate today, I'm guessing. After voting convincingly for cloture yesterday, the Senate will take up the motion to confirm Judge Alito as the newest member of the Supreme Court. All indications are that he's going to get the votes. Expect to hear about it in the State of the Union address tonight. It will be interesting to see how the vote goes. I'll have more to post when those results are known. Until then...
