Confirmations, Bargaining Chips, and Holds

The Post uses this editorial to discuss the pace of Senate confirmation of White House appointees.

Lawmakers should be less quick to use confirmations as bargaining chips and should limit the use of holds. They should think about just how many positions really require Senate confirmation. And they might change the rules so that appointees are automatically confirmed after a reasonable time, unless a majority in the Senate votes not to confirm a nominee.
