    Senate Majority Leader Mitch McConnell (R-KY) responded to the sudden death of Supreme Court Justice Antonin Scalia with a press release saying, "this vacancy should not be filled until we have a new President." Republican presidential candidates Ben Carson, Sen. Ted Cruz (TX), and Sen. Marco Rubio (FL) agree. Hillary Clinton spoke for many Democrats: "The Republicans in the Senate and on the campaign trail who are calling for Justice Scalia’s seat to remain vacant dishonor the Constitution. The Senate has a constitutional responsibly here that it cannot abdicate for partisan political reasons." Conor Friedersdorf says the no-vote stratagem is...

In a statement, Obama said Lew will be "an extraordinary asset to this administration's efforts to cut down the deficit and put our nation back on a fiscally responsible path."

    ATLANTA (Reuters) - Former U.S. House Speaker Newt Gingrich said on Wednesday he would wait until September before deciding whether to run for the Republican party's presidential nomination and described that race as "wide open." Gingrich, who came to national prominence when Republicans won control of Congress in 1994 and promptly passed their program called the Contract with America under his leadership, said the situation in Iraq did not improve it would dominate the election. Between now and September he will work toward pooling ideas and resources with a view to figuring out solutions to tackling long term problems facing...

    This old language is a tough read, so I'm gonna add some bolded headings which quickly summarize the paragraphs that follow. Maybe this helps, maybe not. To the People of the State of New York: Hamilton quotes Article 2 THE President is "to nominate, and, by and with the advice and consent of the Senate, to appoint ambassadors, other public ministers and consuls, judges of the Supreme Court, and all other officers of the United States whose appointments are not otherwise provided for in the Constitution. But the Congress may by law vest the appointment of such inferior officers as...

    Not 24 hours had passed since the stunning election victories for the White House, Senate and House before Arlen Specter, a liberal Republican Senator from Pennsylvania, began dictating terms for confirming judicial nominees to the President of the United States. Specter, next in line to assume the chairmanship of the Senate Judiciary Committee, has a spotty record on judicial confirmations. He joined the left in "Borking" Robert Bork, but was a champion for Clarence Thomas, only to express public regrets for his support of Thomas later. Specter voted for Chief Justice Rehnquist, but stopped Senator Sessions' nomination to the federal...
  • Bush Got It Right on Pickering, the Post Got It Wrong

    On Saturday, the Washington Post ran an editorial titled "End Run for Mr. Pickering," lamenting President Bush's decision to recess-appoint Judge Charles W. Pickering to the Fifth Circuit Court of Appeals. His actions were a direct response to the Democrats' continued filibuster of Pickering's nomination. Instead of simply acknowledging that President Bush was fully within his right to make the appointment and that, even though they disagreed with Pickering's nomination, the President is right to circumvent a filibustering, stonewalling minority of Senators who won't allow a vote on the nomination to fill the vacancy classified as a "judicial emergency" by...
