    Even if the NLRB were not required to have two members from the opposition party I would not be opposed to this.  I would rather have a board that functions than one that doesn't because of filibusters and insistence on a purely progressive makeup.

      ... to the Cabinet and to boards like the NLRB they'd function even better.

      If your criteria is that they function, solely, well, then I guess you'd be ok with a 5 Republican NLRB, which would function just fine, yes?
