More: Reid *Must* Secure 60 Votes by Midnight Tomorrow Or He Won't Make His Christmas Eve Deadline
Report: And Lieberman's Already Gone Back to Connecticut for the Weekend!

Due to the schedule of things he must file, and the required 24 hours for them to "ripen" after filing, and stuff.

Read the whole thing (it's very brief) but here's the nub:

While a lot of people are focusing on Christmas Eve, the key vote will be that first cloture vote on Monday. If he gets 60 votes on that, the rest of the process will be a mere technicality.

So, while it sounds dramatic, the future of the nation's health care system may be decided in the next 34 hours.

Can Al Gore save us? Someone, who sends the story, says DC might get shut down due to snowfall over the weekend.

7:30 AM Tomorrow? Rich Lowry adds the motion must be introduced by 7:30 AM tomorrow.

Corrected: Introduced, not voted for cloture on. Not apparently any conflict between him and Klein. I misunderstood someone's tip.

someone, again.

And Lieberman's Already Headed Out of Town: Does that mean no 60? I think it does.

Lieberman skips town!

With a major winter storm moving in, Senate staff is setting up cots in Hill offices to spend the night in preparation for an important procedural vote early Saturday morning that all 60 Democrats are likely needed for except TPMDC has confirmed that Sen. Joe Lieberman has beat it back to Connecticut for the Sabbath.
