Via the Hotline On Call: Panel To Delay Kagan Vote
GOP senators will use the ability of any committee member under the panel’s rules to put off a vote for one week, several aides said. They said committee GOPers want more time to review the nomination. Kagan returned written answers to questions for the record submitted by senators on Friday. "The committee will need time to review her responses" said a GOP staffer.
In the grand scheme of things, not that big of a deal. But, seriously, the only reason to invoke the rule is to delay for delay’s sake.
