Confirmation Process In Reverse Order

Shouldn't we learn something about this guy first?

Top Democrat vows to block possible Bush nominee

WASHINGTON (Reuters) - Senate Majority Leader Harry Reid vowed on Wednesday to block former Solicitor General Theodore Olson from becoming attorney general if President George W. Bush nominates him to replace Alberto Gonzales.

"He's a partisan, and the last thing we need as an attorney general is a partisan," Reid told Reuters in a brief hallway interview on Capitol Hill.

I thought that the Democratically controlled Senate was supposed to hold the confirmation hearings first and then reject the Republican nominee after smearing his reputation. It was nice of Sen. Reid to put this one on the fast-track and reject Olson even before he was nominated.

I like that part about not having an Attorney General who is partisan. Maybe we could nominate and confirm a "non-partisan" acceptable to the Democrats, like Bill Clinton, who could have that cabinet post to keep him out of trouble while his wife runs for the presidency. She could make it permanent, if she wins and if non-partisan Janet Reno doesn't object.
