Senator Kit Bond doesn’t think much of the compromise brokered in the Senate to move forward on judicial nominees. A small group of Senators has agreed to back off the filibuster that has kept the Senate from voting on some of President Bush’s judicial nominees. The group says it will support a filibuster only “under extraordinary circumstances.” Bond says he’s not sure what that means, and adds the real test will come if a vacancy arises on the Supreme Court. Bond calls the compromise a Band-Aid. He says the practice of using the filibuster against judicial nominees needs to end.
