It's too bad Miguel Estrada never thought of doing a reverse Geraldo Rivera (formerly Rivers) and renamed himself Mike Smith. He'd probably be sitting on the federal bench right now.

Recess appointments, please.
I'm afraid that using a recess appointment will ensure that the recess appointee will never be confirmed.

Then after they've seen what I can do with a year, the Senate would gladly vote to confirm Estrada for life.

TroutStalker, if you can, please post the Wall Street Journal front page article of 11-26 about Christians who do missionary work among muslims. It was a very interesting article and I believe that many at Free Republic would enjoy reading it.

"When President Reagan set out to appoint a board [of the Legal Services Corporation] of his own through recess appointments, Hillary masterminded a lawsuit arguing that such recess appointments were illegal (though she, herself, had been appointed in just this way).
TroutStalker, thank you.
