Barack Obama may be teaming up with Harry Reid to distract public attention from a number of scandals by picking a fight over packing the second-highest court in the country. Obama announced three nominations to the D.C. Circuit Court of Appeals yesterday.
Is Obama trying to distract people from the scandals rocking his Administration? Is his ultimate objective packing the courts? Or is he trying to kill two birds with one stone?
