In February (FEBRUARY!) 2009, Mitch McConnell wrote this letter to Harry Reid reminding him of the usual requirements for the advise and consent process for the incoming Obama Administration cabinet appointees. This is pretty clear and pretty reasonable, so let’s have this same set of rules apply, right?
So where are the Dems here? If I was Chuck Schumer, I would have just resent this to McConnell with my name on it.
Dos anyone know if any Senator can put a hold on a cabinet appointee confirmation? Because that is certainly one outlet to make sure the process gets done.
