"I disagree that the Republican majority in the Senate would be exercising a "nuclear option" by changing the rules on vote cloture to prevent Democrats from filibustering President Bush`s judicial nominees," writes David Limbaugh. "The Constitution empowers the president to appoint judges with the advice and consent of the Senate. The advice and consent power was never intended to confer co-equal power on the Senate over judicial (and other) nominations. Rather, it was designed to provide a legislative check to reduce the risk that the president would appoint unqualified judges or those with poor character."
