This means that shortly after 4 p.m. EDT, Harry Reid may once again talk about Ted Kennedy “smiling at all of us.”

From The Hill:

The Senate voted 68-32 Thursday to end debate on immigration legislation, clearing the way for the landmark bill to pass later in the day.

The bill’s authors fell just short of their goal to win 70 votes for the legislation but said the robust bipartisan vote creates a strong mandate for the House to act next month on the issue. Fourteen Republicans voted to end debate, and no Democrats opposed it.

The final vote will take place at 4 p.m.

It’ll be the shock of the century if this bill doesn’t clear the Senate, because it’s porkapalooza all around.
