"Itís important to note that the president didnít really want to nominate Boggs.."

snip//

Itís important to note that the president didnít really want to nominate Boggs, so this isnít exactly an example of Senate Democrats betraying the White House. Boggs was included as part of a compromise reached with Republican senators from Georgia, as part of a deal on blue slips (for more on what a blue slip is, see our coverage from March).

But Democrats in the upper chamber werenít part of that agreement and were under no obligations to honor it.


MOre facts..

But, of course the reality won't stop those who want to continue taking out their ignorant rage on President.
