    the logic behind this tactic is that POTUS appointments require support of key Senators in POTUS's party and the best way to achieve getting message across is through those Senators that POTUS and his people need.

    But then, I'm not in charge and I'm not savvy, so others who are can probably explain it better.  Going straight to the WH doesn't do much in terms of making the WH's path toward what they want more difficult.  It's just a PR move.  This could be calculated to have more "bang for the buck" in terms of using the system.
