    The senate decides when they go to recess.

    If they have the majority they can - just as Democrats used their majority to stay in session in order to keep Bush from making recess appointments.

    More than that - the beginning of the acerbic politicization of the nomination process.

    I believe I remember Ted Kennedy claiming something to the effect of the America of Robert Bork woulf be one of "back alley abortions" and crazy talk like that. He would have been a justice that followed the Constitution, thus, very dangerous to the left.
    So, the left is okay with blocking SC nominees based on the fact that they don't like what they would do as a judge, not based at all in their qualifications.

    And the right is very clearly ok with blocking every nominee based on the fact that they don't like the president, rather than any specific objection to the nominee.

    What is the definition of being in recess, since the children in DC can't figure it out, the SCOTUS will .
