    The Democratic Leadership Council (which consists of mostly "centerist" Democrats) have come out and said in a press release that they oppose Alito but they also oppose a filibuster.

    That is, many in their group will vote for cloture (to end debate and bring Alito to a vote) even if they vote "no".

    Therefore, given that many Senators are DLC members, we probably don't have the necessary 41 votes to prevent the Alito vote from taking place.

    I got this in an e-mail from them as I subscribe to their "Blueprint" magazine.

    This depresses me, but I hope this means that they have a vision for success that I am unaware of.

    When liberals saw 9-11, we wondered how we could make the country safe. When conservatives saw 9-11, they saw an investment opportunity.
