Senate passed bill to fund government for 3 days. DADT vote around 11 AM ET

Tonight, the Senate passed a 3-day continuing resolution, which lasts through December 21, 2010. That should allay one of the concerns of the four GOP Senators who support repeal. It should, but, as we know, with GOPers, there are no guarantees. It’s all depends on what Mitch McConnell says.

The Senate will convene at 9:00 AM. There will be cloture vote on the DREAM Act at around 10:30 AM ET. The DADT vote will be up after that, probably around 11 AM ET. It’s a cloture motion (to end debate), so we need 60 votes.

The Senate being the Senate, anything could happen.
