A Byrd Veto?


Major Garrett on Fox News reported tonight that sources inside the Bush
administration’s search for a Supreme Court nominee tell him that there’s a
plan to run several names by Sen. Robert Byrd and seek his pre-approval so
as to forestall any Democratic filibuster threat. It is hard to imagine an
authentic constitutionalist who would be acceptable to Byrd, so I hope
Garrett’s reporting is wrong about this.
