Fillibuster showdown is near

The US Senate is continuing debate over judicial nominees and appears likely to head towards an all-night session that would culminate in a showdown tomorrow. C-SPAN 2 has indicated that a vote on cloture is expected around 5:30 PM EST.

A compromise does not appear likely, but centrist Senators are continuing to meet in hopes of reaching an agreement.

The Associated Press has this guide to how the vote on banning judicial filibusters could go down.
