    The Republicans have effectively killed recess appointment power -- at least for PBO and Democratic Presidents.  Dem's will be 'fair' when it's their turn and let the RWNJ's get anybody they want.  They 'stay in session' and there is no recess although there isn't a soul to actually, you know, be in session.

    The Sentelle Court has allowed this.  Who knows about the SC.  

    And because Harry Reid was more concerned that Merkeley didn't show him enough 'respect', rather than convince Feinstein or Boxer about filibuster reform, I see no Senate  Dem's who would use the same sword against Republicans that they are willing to use against PBO's agenda and his right to have obviously competent advisors.
