Chris Eisgruber praises Doug Kmiec, Ted Olson and Ken Starr over at Politico

Kudos to conservative lawyers Doug Kmiec, Ted Olson and Ken Starr for sticking to their principles about executive branch nominations. When the Republicans held the White House, Kmiec, Olson and Starr argued that Democratic senators had a duty to defer to the president when he nominated judges and executive branch lawyers. Now, with a Democrat in the White House, they have held to that position.

I and other liberals should remember their example — and follow it — the next time a Republican is in the White House.
