Default Chafee Becomes First Republican Senator to Oppose Alito

I called this one (it wasn't a difficult call )...we'll see if I'm right about Snowe or not. I'm not bothering with Chafee's quotes, but here are some other interesting tidbits from the article:

The Senate was holding a test vote Monday afternoon. If Alito, 55, could garner at least 60 votes there, the final confirmation vote would be Tuesday morning. An Associated Press survey last week showed that Alito has at least 62 votes.
Alito, a 15-year veteran of the federal appeals court, has well over 50 votes for confirmation Tuesday. At least 53 of the Republicans' 55-member majority and three Democrats -- Robert Byrd of West Virginia, Tim Johnson of South Dakota and Ben Nelson of Nebraska -- already publicly supporting his confirmation as the replacement for retiring Justice Sandra Day O'Connor.

Sen. Kent Conrad, D-N.D., also announced Friday he is "leaning in favor of voting for" the conservative judge.

Final vote in favor of cloture was 72 for. A number of dems ran to change their votes when they saw it would pass by good margin. As most of you know, this happens all the time. Then they can go back to their unknowing constituents and say they voted against it before they voted for it.
