Dimocratic Leadership

From TPM:

"Last recess, the White House made a number of controversial recess appointments, including Swift Boat backer Sam Fox as ambassador to Belgium. In order to prevent that sort of thing from happening again, Reid had plotted to keep the Senate in "pro forma" session during the recess -- whereby the Senate floor personnel show up every three days to make it an official session. But now Reid and Bush have made a deal, according to Roll Call. Bush won't make any recess appointments and Reid has promised to move some of his [judicial] nominees when Senate gets back in session."
Hey, what are a few Nazis with a lifetime appointment to the Federal bench in return for a skeleton crew not having to take 2 or 3 days out of their vacation? Cause, you know, they have worked really hard for us and our Constitution lately.
