    whatever would count? Or if Harry says we are in recess, we are? I recoiled when I first heard of Barney saying this because I feared them finding a way to block it.

    Hoping Harry doesn't make another deal like he did in a recent break, promising no recess appointments

    Remember that in late 2010?

    Last night, Senate Majority Leader Harry Reid decided he'd hold multiple weekly pro-forma Senate sessions during the election-season recess, which will prevent Obama from legally recess appointing his stalled nominees.

    Well that was before election, maybe he was just sucking up.
    Please God, let the appointment happen.

    I kind of think it will. This was something Obama really pushed, actually called Dodd to the office after Dodd spoke of dropping or weakening it to get republican votes. There was even a diary on it here

    And damn, what an easy thing to defend, refusing to back down to republican demands to weaken protecting us little folks
