Republicans Again Reject Obama Judiciary Pick

President Obama's "latest choice to fill one of the vacancies on a powerful appeals court went down in a filibuster on Tuesday as Senate Republicans blocked another White House nominee -- the third in two weeks -- and deepened a growing conflict with Democrats over presidential appointments," the New York Times reports.

Washington Post: "For all their intensity, there is nothing particularly new about these nominations fights. Both sides have been at war for years over the federal appellate courts in general, and the D.C. Circuit in particular. The battle has been going on so long that it is difficult to discern who fired the first shot and when."
