The Next AG
Nominate Ted Olsen, writes Marc Sheppard, and I can’t agree more. The fact that Harry Reid calls Olsen a partisan is all the more reason to nominate him and then fight the Senate tooth and nail.
As a lawyer and the government’s top advocate before the Supreme Court, Olsen can run rings around teh blowhards in the Senate and still come out on top. He is qualified and the President has the right to have the men and women of his choosing to serve in office so long as they are qualified.
I dare the Senate to make a circus out of an Olsen nomination–go ahead–do it.
