  •  How about Robert Reich for NLRB? (2+ / 0-)

    I guess maybe he isn't a lawyer.  But there are plenty of good pro-labor people who could get nominated.  Then if they aren't confirmed, Reid can use the nuclear option on them, or on the new Homeland Security person or whoever.

    The best part (other than getting Cordray and Gina McCarthy confirmed) is some GOP Senators seem to be getting tired of McConnell's obstructionism.  If he can be marginalized somewhat, it is worth it.

      According to Wikipedia, Reich has ...

      ... a J.D. from Yale Law School, where he was an editor of the Yale Law Journal.

      From 1973 to 1974 he served as law clerk to Judge Frank M. Coffin, Chief Judge of the U.S. Court of Appeals for the First Circuit, and from 1974 to 1976 was Assistant to the U.S. Solicitor General, Robert Bork.

      appointment someone like Reich.  An anathema to the Repubs.  But he won't.  It will be middle of the road, if not a Repub, just to show how much of an adult he is.
