The guests debated the judicial nomination process and the

“nuclear” option being discussed in the Senate to confirm federal judges. Mr. Mincberg opposed President Bush’s resubmitted federal court nominees who were filibustered by Senate Democrats last session. Mr. Miranda supports the current nominees and has been called the architect of the “nuclear” option (eliminating the two-thirds vote required to stop a Senate filibuster). They responded to audience telephone calls, faxes and electronic mail. close
