"We've never opposed a presidential nomination to an Executive Branch position. Objecting to individuals (as opposed to ideas and proposals) has always smacked of high school politics to us. We didn't want to join partisan frays. But we were wrong because ... Personnel is policy ... The people a President hires to execute policy may actually have more control over that policy than the President himself does. If true, then it's folly to remain silent about appointments."
