174. Sorry, what you are saying is simply not Constitutionally possible. A single Senator cannot
Edited on Tue May-26-09 04:12 PM by No Elephants
nominate a judge, only the President can. Then, the full Senate votes on the nominee.

Whatever the custom may have been then as to nominees, Moynihan had to bring the name to Bush 41 and Bush 41, and only Bush 41, had to make the nomination. Believing that Moynihan brought Bush 41 only one name and Bush simply rubber stamped that name, no matter how far left the person may have been, is naive, IMO. Disagreeing with you does not mean I don't "get" something. It simply means I do not necessarily accept your view of things.

Also, please see Reply #168.
