Senate Dems to Block All Nominations:

That's the word from Sen. Charles Schumer's (search) office, which released a statement on Friday saying that Senate Democrats plan 'to hold nominations until the White House commits to stop abusing the advise and consent process.'

That's fine, the solution is very simple. The Whitehouse should put the appointees on TV. I saw Pickering interviewed on 60 Minutes last night. It was a very balanced report on the Bush appointee that went a long way toward dispeling the myth that he's a racist because of one case he tried. If Bush puts men and women like that on TV (maybe even targeted in the home States of the Senators that are causing problems) he can make the Dems look like pretty unreasonable obstructionists. But again, the Bush administration needs to get out in front of this. They can't keep llaying defense.
