  1. Why should the incoming Senate confirm Obama’s Judge nominees if his own Party wouldn’t do it? Regardless of who these nominees are, if Harry Reid couldn’t bother, why should Mitch McConnell?

    As far as Senator Udall reading the CIA report into the Congressional Record: That would be an excellent way to demonstrate why it was good to displace the Democrats from running anything. Such a childish and immature gesture acted out in a fit of pique would leave a lasting image for 2016.

  2. If Senate Democrats have any decency, they will stay in session this year to confirm all the vacant federal judges. There are currently over 60 vacancies on the federal court, and Obama has nominated 32. The senate now has the ability to confirm judges with a majority vote, so there is no reason not to stay in session and get this done.
    The other major issue would be to have outgoing Senator Mark Udall from Colorado read into the congressional record the CIA report. He has the report as a member of the Intelligence Committee and also has the legal right to do this. It was done by Senator Mike Gravel from Alaska with the Pentagon Papers in the 70’s.
