    Covering the real questions involved in this case. I don't see much hope for the Presidents case, the Senate was clearly in session under Senate rules holding "pro-forma" sessions in lieu of the required permission from the House to recess for more than 3 days.

    The fact that these sessions were probably held merely to prevent recess appointments is I think, irrelevant to the case, since no rule of congress or violation of the constitution appears to have been committed.

    Honesty may be the best policy, but it's important to remember that apparently, by elimination, dishonesty is the second-best policy.
