Senate Shutdown over Judicial Nominees?


According to this Wall Street Journal editorial today, Senator Specter is threatening to shut down the Senate’s proceedings if the Democratic obstruction of judicial nominees continues.  As the editorial puts it, and as Specter clearly understands, the “only way to get [Democrats] to move is to force them to pay a political price for their obstructionism.” 


Kudos to Specter for his continued leadership.
