    Yes because we all know that you have to be conservative to get buried in Arlington.

    We saw this in the SCOTUS recently, when one of the Justices Recused themselves in a case which they had participated in presenting to the court a few years early.

    The President appoints the AG. Always has, in addition to any other Cabinet post.

    Besides which, I really don't think Boehner wants the headache of getting his nominee through the Senate with an election in 6 weeks.

    Have you ever read a civics textbook?

    The president "picks" no one, this is not a game of pick up b-ball. According to the constitution Congress is there to "advise and consent" to nominations suggested by the president. There is no provision, as you seem to suggest, that congress is in any way obliged to do what is demanded by the president, and history shows the reverse...many nominations get turfed by congress because they didn't like the nominee.

    Obama and his followers would like to think he has the powers of Stalin, but the truth is he and them only show their ignorance of the basics of governance.

    This might be one reason Holder is stepping down now, once they lose a confirmation will be harder for them.

    will congress actually try to do any advising or suggest likely candidates for attorney general?
