commented on History in the Making! Republican-Led Senate Breaks 100-Year Record for Congressional Ineptitude!
I dunno, it just seems like if Obama decides to withdraw the nomination, it's like saying that this was not a serious nomination. It's kind of tacky, like disinviting someone whom you were going to take out to dinner for their birthday. (Not sure if that's a good analogy, but hopefully it gets the general idea across.)
I suppose the way he could put it is that he has decided to defer to his successor to make her own nomination, but otherwise, if Garland doesn't request it, I just don't see a withdrawal.
