Don't count out the conservative Republicans in the Senate. They generally block anything Obama tries to do, including appointments to federal courts.

People such as yourself, are part of the problem, not the solution.

This is a class guy that can be supported from both sides of the isle. Congrats to an outstanding Lawrence High graduate! He won unanimous approval from the judiciary committee. Pretty sure there are some Republicans on that committee. ;)

This is a big deal. Be stunned if Senate GOP blocked him after a unanimous vote. Definitely sets him up as a possible Supreme Court nominee in the future.

Srinivasan, 46, was born in India, but he moved at a young age with his family to Lawrence, where he grew up. He was a Lawrence High point guard on the basketball team in the 1980s and spoke at the LHS graduation ceremony in 1985, according to Journal-World archives.
