White House Sends New Nominations to the Senate

Here is a list of the latest batch of nominations that the prez has sent to my favorite 100 politicians. The most interesting name on the list is Brett Kavanaugh for a seat on the DC Circuit. He's been nominated for that seat before and blocked in the past by Senate Democrats. One can speculate on the reason. It might have something to do with the fact that Kavanaugh worked in the Office of Independent Counsel under Ken Starr. I guess some old wounds have yet to heal.

Kavanaugh seems qualified to me. He's a Yalie, he's got an impressive list of clerkships (Stapleton on the 3rd, Kozinski on the 9th, and Kennedy on the Court), a partner at Kirkland & Ellis, and counselor to the president. The fact that Bush renominated him is a sign that he's going to fight for him. This should be interesting to watch.
