White House presses Estrada nomination
Interesting... it doesn't look as though Bush will use a recess appointment to seat Estrada on the appeals court, choosing instead to fight it out.
Fleischer decried the "reemergence of the liberal wing" as though it was a bad thing. If he wants to call 45 Senate Democrats the "liberal wing" of the party, then I'm happy.
But my favorite is Leahy's egging on of Senate Republicans:
But Democrats have said they have enough votes to sustain a filibuster in the Senate, which would prevent an up or down vote the majority Republicans would be expected to win.Posted February 18, 2003 08:12 PM | Comments (40)
