For months President Clinton has complained that Republicans are not moving quickly to confirm the judges he nominates for federal court seats. In a recent radio address he said, "We can't let partisan politics shut down our courts and gut our judicial system."
Such a statement typifies Bill Clinton's charm. He often says, in essence, What I do is above politics, what Republicans do is partisan. House Majority Whip Tom DeLay (R-Texas) responded by opposing judicial activism, praising judicial restraint, and stressing the need for governmental checks and balances.
