  •  Other consequence not discussed (0+ / 0-)

    is that Obama can now fire a poor performing administration official without fear that the resulting vacancy won't be filled.
    Expect Katheeln Sebelius to be shown the door soon.

    •  Interesting (0+ / 0-)

      I had not read or heard anyone else making this point.

    •  I doubt Sibelius is on that list (0+ / 0-)

      but you do make an interesting point.

      I'm more interested in whether (or when) Justice Ginsburg decides to step down, and there may well be other judges well over 70 who would take senior status if they trusted that the Senate would be reasonably prompt in filling the vacancy.
