The Way to Do Things
This is very good news. Apparently Harry Reid is planning to have a pro forma session of the Senate every 10 days during the August recess. By doing this, Bush will be denied the opportunity to make any recess appointments. There won't be a recess long enough to kick in the President's recess appointment power. I've wondered if something like this could be done and am glad to see that it can and will be done. This is how to play hardball, and hardball is what the Democrats need to be playing.
