Schumer: Block Bush Judicial Appointees

Senator Charles Schumer asserted today that the Democrats shouldn't confirm another Supreme Court appointee by President Bush, because "The Supreme Court is dangerously out of balance."

I don't seem to recall anything about "balance" in the Constitution...the Senate's role in the judicial appointment process is to provide advice and consent, not to obstruct.

I'm sure Senator Schumer will expect Republicans to confirm the appointees of Democrat Presidents, as they always have in the past...yet he believes strident partisanship is the right course for Democrats when a Republican is President.
