Italian Premier Silvio Berlusconi, right, talks to senators during a parliament debate, at the Senate in Rome, Tuesday, Dec. 14, 2010. Premier Silvio Berlusconi's political fate lies in the hands of a few swing lawmakers who will decide the outcome of confidence votes in the Italian parliament following a slew of scandals and political infighting. Parliament debate resumes Tuesday with a vote in the Senate scheduled to begin at 1030 GMT (5:30 a.m. EST), which the premier is expected to win. The risk lies in the lower Chamber of Deputies, where Berlusconi's split with longtime ally and Chamber speaker Gianfranco Fini has potentially deprived him of a majority. (AP Photo/Riccardo De Luca)
