    I wish the Senate would adopt bipartisan timelines and schedules that would allow adequate time to complete background checks and have confirmation hearings but that within that time every nominee would have an up or down vote. For minor posts maybe its 60 days and for major positions its 90 days or even 120 days, but at the end everyone gets an up or down vote. If they don't receive 51 votes in the Senate they go home.
