Got time for a good read this weekend? Then check out the current issue of The American Prospect. Robert Kuttner has a superb article about the entire judicial selection process, the errors made by the Obama Administration during the president’s first term, and what needs to be done now to get the process back on track.
The story is a great primer on exactly how the judicial selection process works, an insightful analysis of why so much ground was lost during the president’s first term, and an important call to action. As AFJ President Nan Aron says in the story:
The administration needs an all-hands-on-deck approach this term, including a more active role by the Justice Department, a task force in the White House dedicated to finding and confirming nominees for every vacancy, and, most importantly, a more assertive personal role for the President himself.
