The Case for Keisler:
Over at Bench Memos, Ed Whelan asks why Peter Keisler's DC Circuit nomination is being blocked. Presumably the answer is that it's a political process, and that's how the politics are working out right now. But whatever the reason, I share Ed's dismay about the situation. I don't know Keisler well, but everyone I have spoken with on both sides of the aisle speaks extremely highly of him. Of all the pending Bush nominations, Keisler's is the one that I would most like to see go through.
