    Many times a reason is not stated. A Senator has the power to put a hold on a nomination, no questions asked. I think that's a problem, and that a nominee at least should be given a hearing before being tossed aside.

    To be fair, Democrats were just as guilty of this during the Bush administration. It's funny how all the Republicans who talked about the Constitution requiring a vote back then are silent now. I wonder why...

    I believe in an up or down vote, but the silly hysteria about "historic obstruction" doesn't match reality. The GOP has stood firm against some nominees for IMHO legit reasons, some for political score which I don't like... it's politics. The well is poisoned, and that is gonna take serious effort to fix.
