In case you missed it

From Judiciary chair, Senator Leahy, in his statement of December 18:

"President Bush nominated Duncan Getchell to one of Virginia’s Fourth Circuit Vacancies over the objections of Senators Warner and Webb, one a Republican and one a Democrat. They had submitted a list of five recommended nominations, and specifically warned the White House not to nominate Mr. Getchell. As a result, this nomination that is opposed by Democratic and Republican home-state Senators is one that cannot move."
