Although I would have rather seen the filibuster destroyed for presidential appointments, it’s a relatively minor victory for Democrats that the Republicans caved on the seven nominations. Some politicos are calling this a major victory, but I don’t see how allowing a few appointees through after delaying effective government for several months qualifies as a great victory.

Anyway, as part of the deal, Obama has to withdraw 2 nominees for the National Labor Relations Board. But he can then name whoever he wants and the Republicans agree to an up or down vote. Given that he only needs 51 votes, we need to call on the president to name Elizabeth Warren-style appointees to the position who will be tigers in support of organized labor. The road is clear and it’s time for Obama to pay back organized labor a little bit.
