  •  Well actually it cant work that way (none)
    The vote on cloture comes BEFORE voting on Alito.  So he can;t vote against Alito and then leave town.

    And "voting for cloture" and "not participating in a flibuster" is one and the same.

    Landrieu said outright that she will vote to invoke cloture.  Salazar and Biden said that they won't support a filibuster.  I doubt that Dorgan or Conrad would support a filibuster either.  I predict that the cloture motion gets at least 65 votes.
