« Weil Names New D.C. Managing Partner | Main | On Gideon's 50th, Lawyers Lament Lack of Access to Justice »

It seems you don't understand what's being suggested, MurryMom. For the only hesitancy the administration would have in publishing the status of pre-nomination negotiations is that there likely haven't been many such negotiations -- if any. Were they the norm, more consensus nominees would have emerged and been seated on the bench by now. But this president doesn't negotiate. With his less-than-52-percent-of-the-vote "mandate," he dictates. And thus he invites reciprocal intransigence.


proposal that the " White House publish the status of pre-nomination negotiations (although not the names of the potential nominees themselves)" -- ???

Why would the Obama WH agree to such an intrusive measure when no R administration would even consider it?
