  •  Reid should schedule a vote-a-thon (8+ / 0-)

    to clear the decks of the 27 nominees that are pending on the Senate floor - most of them since 2013.

    The 5 Circuit court nominees could take up to 30 hours each, meaning the GOP could kill a week of Senate time stalling them. However, the 22 District court nominees can only be delayed 2 hours each, so they could all be cleared in 2 days even if Republicans delay them to the max.

    That would clear 27 of the 85 current vacancies - about a third - and knock the vacancies down to 58. This would also fill 12 Judicial Emergencies - also about a 1/3 of the total emergencies.

    These nominees have all cleared the Judiciary Committee - Reid needs to get their floor votes scheduled.

    Election Day is Nov 4th, 2014 It's time for the Undo button on the 2010 Election.
