Claude Allen takes White House position

The Richmond paper reports here ("Bush taps C. Allen as policy adviser," 1/6/05) that Claude Allen will not be renominated to the Fourth Circuit because he is becoming the domestic policy advisor to President Bush.

This development gives the President another chance to try to reach some understanding with the Maryland senators, on the successor to Judge Murnaghan. I'm sure that accommodiating those two remain a top priority at the White House.
