Majority Leader Frist just told my audience that an override of a presidential veto of legislation blocking the port deal was possible. Looks like a showdown, and it isn’t one the president can win.
I also spent a lot of time with the Senator on Brett Kavanaugh’s blocked nomination, and on the possibility of a constitutional option being deployed for judicial nominees who are the subject of “holds” or blue slips.
There’s also some talk about Lincoln Chafee obstructing ESA reform and a great deal of conversation about the threat posed by bird fu. The transcript of the interview will bee up later at Radioblogger.com.
