And Then There Were 110

Well, the Senate has voted, and Alito has been sworn in. There were no big surprises regarding the vote. It was pretty much along party lines, with a few exceptions:

All but one of the Senate's majority Republicans voted for his confirmation, while all but four of the Democrats voted against Alito. Republican Lincoln Chafee of Rhode Island voted no and Democrats Ben Nelson of Nebraska, Kent Conrad of North Dakota, Tim Johnson of South Dakota and Robert C. Byrd of West Virginia voted yes.
