Fish or Cut Bait

Alexander Bolton reports in The Hill today that the Bush Administration is asking senators to "fish or cut bait" concerning circuit court nominees stalled for years in Senate limbo, such as Terrence Boyle (4th Circuit), William Haynes (4th Circuit), and William Myers (9th Circuit). In other words, confirm them or reject them on an up or down vote, but don't leave them hanging any longer. That strikes me as a request so reasonable that no senator acting in good faith should say no to it. Of course, some will say no nonetheless.
