    I don't really understand what the rule should be. Should the government just shut down after an election until the new government takes over. What is the role of the President while he is a lame duck? Should he just not do his job other than prepare the office for the next guy?
    Also and this is just is an aside, it seems like protesting the nomination of a Latino person to a Circuit court goes against Warren's insistence that we diversify the judiciary.

    First link is a letter Diana Feinstein sent to Lindsey Graham on the same issue

    U.S. Sens. Elizabeth Warren and Edward Markey are calling on President Trump to withdraw his nomination for a new federal appeals court judge in Massachusetts, saying it was made during a “lame-duck session” after the presidential race was called in favor of his rival.

    “Confirming the nominee during this lame-duck session would require Republicans to yet again violate longstanding Senate norms and rules,” the senators said in a statement Tuesday. “The White House should not be using its final days to try to rush through the nomination of a judge who will have a lifetime appointment to a court with jurisdiction over Massachusetts.”

    Trump last Friday nominated Raúl M. Arias-Marxuach to the U.S. Court of Appeals for the First Circuit, which oversees Massachusetts, Maine, New Hampshire, Rhode Island and Puerto Rico. Arias-Marxuach, who was appointed in 2019 as a U.S. District Court judge in Puerto Rico, has local ties — he received his undergraduate degree from Boston College before earning his J.D. from the University of Puerto Rico School of Law and a master of laws degree from Harvard Law School.

    Republicans still have the presidency and the house.

    They should be doing as much as humanly possible while they still have that balance of power.

    I hope he gets as many judges as he can across. When Joe gets into office they can file lawsuits for every one of his EO's. Many conservative judges were confirmed while libs were working on the all important impeachment.
