To: BJClinton

I know the Reps want to change the rhetoric from the "nuclear option" to the "constitutional option" and I agree the term may suit the action more. I still love the first term. I love the fireworks it engenders.

Pickering is retiring unfortunately.

Estrada I'd love to have nominated again, but with his wife's death I doubt he could be convinced to go through the hell the dems wish to subject him to without cause.

I do believe it is more than coincidence Frist announces they have the 51 votes the day G.W. releases the list of his nominations submitted once again.

Thank you G.W. for holding firm! I'm truly hoping at the end of the day I can say the same about our Republicans in Congress. I've largely withheld judgement against them in fairness. I sincerely hope that judgement is rewarded.

I think Estrada made that call last year when he had the President withdraw his name from nomination so he could get on with his life..... Too bad to lose a good nominee but I can understand his position.

"LET'S GET READY TOOOOOOO RUUMMMMMBBLEEE!!!!!"

" WASHINGTON (Reuters) - President Bush set up a showdown with Senate Democrats on Monday by renominating 20 failed judicial nominees, many of whom had been denounced by critics as "right-wing extremists."

The renewed battle over the nominees promises to produce plenty of fireworks as Bush begins his second term with an expanded Senate Republican majority and still-defiant Senate Democrats.

Senate Majority Leader Bill Frist, a Tennessee Republican, has threatened to change the Senate's rules to prevent any more procedural hurdles known as filibusters against judicial nominees.

Senate Minority Leader Harry Reid of Nevada has vowed Democrats are "not going to cut and run" from any such fight.

Democrats have also promised to retaliate against any rule change by invoking other procedural hurdles that could bring the Senate to a standstill.

"Republicans would rue the day they changed the rules," Reid has warned.

Democrats blocked 10 of Bush's judicial nominees with filibusters during his first term. In addition, more than a dozen others were left hanging when Congress came to a close last year. "

Reid vows dems "won't cut and run". The dems make me so sick, they serve no purpose other that to fight W and what most Americans want for their country, for the life of me I can't see what purpose they serve but to obstruct our government. They certainly don't have the guts to fight our enemies. Our troops and our enemies know all to well how quickly the dems will "cut and run" when it comes to a real fight.

Thought the reason Estrada withdrew his name was because of his wife's illness...SO he could spend time with her....

Expect him to be "W" first SCOTUS nominee.

Um. She wasn't ill. This was a sudden and unexpected passing.

While I would love to see Estrada on the bench, I really doubt it will happen.

Didn't you mean, "If Bush can pack the courts with judges who can understand and apply Constitutional principles, his legacy will indeed be great."?

Amen!

IMO, the single biggest problem in America today is a judiciary who have usurped the legislature's job and put the will of the people aside for their own will.

May God be in this process to right the wrongs done by activist, leftist judges!

Time for the obstructionists to put up or shut up. Frist should at least make them mount a real filibuster and lose some sleep if they want to cause problems.

Word is newly elected senator TOM COBURN from Oklahoma is at the head of picking out judges. Tom my friend is probably the most conservative member of the senate.

I'm not too up on Judges, but I hope he has better advisors helping him pick them out than his father or Ford did.

With some people, they're "true to character" for years until they're in a position of authority or power. When their coveted goal is achieved, and they're pretty much beyond being removed or held accountable any longer (unless they've committed something outrageously immoral or criminal), their stripes "miraculously" change and they no longer are what they once were perceived to be. I believe this has happened numerous times with the Supreme Court Justices, no matter by whom they were appointed (although, my guess is it probably happened more often by liberals who were believed to be conservatives).

GUYS(and gals). If we change the rules to use the nuclear option, ALL we have to do pass the current judges through, then change the rules back before the possibility of a dem president (which I do not believe will happen) comes to
light. There is nothing to worry about..

I'm not worried. If they again come to power (perish the thought), they have the right to have judges confirmed if they get 51 votes. That is how it is supposed to work.

"One name conspicuously absent from the list -- and one that should have been at the top of the list, I might add: Miguel Estrada."

That is because he will be on the list for SCOTUS when a vacancy opens.

All the ones in my comments, not all the ones in the White House press release. And not voted down, not allowed to be voted on, in a straight up-or-down vote, on the floor of the Senate, due to the Dems playing the filibuster nuclear option.

The carryover Clinton appointee is Helene White - who also is a cousin to Carl Lenin.

I think Griffin is one of the Bush judges.

Without serious GOP opposition, I might add.

Why can't the GOP run serious Senate candidates in overwhelmingly red states like NV, ND, and MT???
