WAIT: Some R Senators May Be in Davos And Unable to Vote on Cloture Now

The Davos Factor

A full vote from the Senate may not come until next Tuesday, the day of President Bush's State of the Union address. Republicans hope for a confirmation vote by Friday, though Democrats have declined to guarantee one.

Republicans say the delay is the result of Democrats hoping to prevent a victory for the president before his address, but one aide to a Democratic Judiciary Committee member said he thought Senate Majority Leader Bill Frist may be holding off because some Republicans will be in Davos, Switzerland, for the World Economic Forum.

John Kerry is in Davos with other Capitalist slime from bother parties. Didn't you read the CNN article?

I realized that after I got the post up. I was more concerned with knowing who the Republicans were, because that might have given us insight into the timing of the cloture motion. Now we know it's Monday, 4:30 pm Eastern.

We can deal with the capitalist slime later, on this site -- and welcome to it! Right now it's all Alito, all the time, until Monday.

Thank you so much for posting information on how to contact our senators. I have desperately wanted to do SOMETHING, and you have made it easy to do so. I have contacted each and every one of them by e-mail, and now I shall begin calling to leave messages.
