    I can't disagree with his points though that the new Senate should approve her, taking away the "stain" of being approved by losing DEM Senators.

    Gov. Walker next but I won't be able to watch West/Palin .
    Well, the Senate has already approved her twice before I think I heard earlier...

Besides any cabinet member is going to do exactly what the president wishes anyway.

    Judges are a different deal.
    It is my understanding she has been confirmed twice before by Congress for other posts, so other then her connection to Holder, which is a huge negative, she should breeze through this time as well.

    OK so his first AG was a black male and the second will be a black female. Which box will he check next if she doesn't work out.

    Personally I think it is good she is a woman, at least the government can save money on her salary. I assume she will be paid less than Holder is being paid, after all that is what happens in this administration.

    Then, when they start hammering the Dems with the Nuclear option Reid handed them they can say "we have no other alternative..."
    The most thoughtful answer I have seen so far on this thread.

    Really? You don't see that both use exactly the same rationale? In order to "keep us safe" we must allow the gov't to stop and search anyone that they wish, without any probable cause or warrant what so ever. We have laws that say what cannot be brought on board and aircraft and we have laws on what may not be carried on the street - you allow "just in case" searches only to protect the airline industry but not to protect the general public?

    Mornin' JMac. She is real close to Holder.....good friends. Trusted confidant. She also has been advising Holder all thru his time. Which should help some to understand what she is about.

    The Repubs wont put up much of a fight over it.....its who BO wants on his team.

    Then apparently the only question left is will the president send her name forth in the lame duck or wait until after the first of the year? Then outside of the very partisan few, does it really make a difference?
    This Reform Party member thinks it is high past time that we start electing Americans to congress and the presidency who put America first and their political party further down the line. But for way too long we have been electing Republicans and Democrats who happen to be Americans instead of Americans who happen to be Republicans and Democrats.

    That's fine. She will follow in Holder's footstep thinking the AG position is to protect and defend the administration instead of being the head lawman of the country. The name doesn't matter who occupies the position, this is just the way it is. It has been that way more or less depending on the president and the person who occupies the position since at least RFK was JFK AG.

    Appoint her and move on. Whoever occupies the AG position is going to do whatever the president wants anyway.

    And he should be able to pick his own team...If he wants to go down being the first black President that spoke a good game about race relations, but in action turned his DoJ into little more than a corrupt cover agency, and henchman for labeling everything they get caught at as racism, then so be it...

    Obama has two years left, and my view at least early on going into this is that unlike other Presidents at his time frame, (Clinton, Bush jr.) Obama will NOT work with the majority to soften his legacy. In fact, I suspect that now is when he will 'step on the gas' so to speak, and ramp up his brand of lawless rule, and dare this new majority with its all but feckless leadership to do something to him...I hope for the country's sake that isn't true, but we will see.
