The Senate should vote on the nomination, now that cloture was invoked and there can be no filibuster, sometime tomorrow afternoon or Wednesday at the latest.
Meanwhile, DOM's blog has the "after" picture with new Federal Judge Gayles and Judge Moreno after the CJ swore him in.

At 5:30 P.M., tonight, the U.S. Senate will vote for cloture. It takes a three-fifths vote (60 votes) to invoke cloture, which places a time limit on the discussion of the vote. By invoking cloture, there can be no filibuster (literally "talk till you drop").
Senator Reid has set the conformation vote for several judicial nominations, including Judge Bloom's, for 11:00 AM Tuesday, meaning that by the end of tomorrow Judge Bloom will have a job for life and there will be another opening on the circuit bench in Miami.
Good luck Judge Bloom.
LEFT OR RIGHT?
Here's something that's been on our mind for sometime:
When you leave the back of the REGJB to perambulate to the PD's office, which way do you go? Left, or right?
We think that your choice says a lot about who you are.
For us, it's always been "when in doubt, go left."
But for others, "right is right."
Take our poll.
We erroneously commented that after the conviction of disgraced former officer German Bosque that Judge De La O did not take him into custody. We were incorrect. After the verdict, Judge De La O set a $50,000.00 bond and house arrest.
@Davidovalle305 later tweeted that Bosque was taken into custody when a bondsman refused to remain on the bond.
A check of the Dade Corrections Website over the weekend did not turn up a German Bosque as being in custody, so some bondsman posted the bond (as surprising as that may seem).
See You In Court.
