CNN is reporting it as breaking news; no story yet.

Could that have something to do with this story, I wonder?

On the same subject, Dems Robert Byrd (W.V.) and Tim Johnson (S.D.) have decided to back Alito.

UPDATE:

Here's the CNN story on Kerry's efforts.

Specter announced a vote is scheduled for 5:30 p.m. on Monday, with possible debate over the weekend.
