28. Maybe it's time for a little civics lesson in the separation of powers


IIRC it is the Executive Branch's responsibility to nominate cabinet members, after which the Legislative Branch (in this case The Senate) votes to approve or disapprove.

Did I miss the "seek first to intimidate" step in this process ?

I pray that BHO will be as committed to S. Rice during nomination as he was during that press conference last week. Big step to have brass balls in words...much more fun to see brass balls in action. Untimately, that's all that will make the difference.
