Late yesterday evening, the Senate reached a compromise on the confirmation of President Bushs judicial nominees.  Although I was pleased that Bill Pryor, Priscilla Owen and Janice Rogers Brown will be confirmed as U.S. Court of Appeals judges, we were very disappointed that all of President Bushs nominees are not getting the up-or-down vote that they are entitled to under the Constitution.  My view at this point is that the failure to reach filibuster reform simply delayed the inevitable.  If, in fact, those who signed the agreement were to live by the terms of the agreement, then the President should be able to nominate and seek confirmation of judges who have the judicial philosophy of Priscilla Owen, Bill Pryor and Janice Rogers Brown.
