Author: Morris Quotes Category: Constitution Quotes American Statesman Quotes
"[In 1787, delegates to the constitutional convention determined that the Senate alone, and not the executive, had the power to nominate and confirm judicial nominees. But by the end of the convention, the framers' views had evolved. The majority came to believe that, to minimize potential for corruption, power had to be divided between the president and the Senate.] As the president was to nominate, ... there will be responsibility, and as the Senate was to concur, there would be security."
