duckworth's nomination stalled

Aw come on, stop stalling. North Carolina Senator Richard Burr has delayed President Barack Obama's nomination of Tammy Duckworth to be an assistant secretary at the Veterans Affairs Department. He apparently wants Duckworth and the White House to answer to some of his questions: Senator stalls Duckworth's nomination.

The Senate Veteran Affairs Committee didn't vote on the nomination last week because Burr, the top Republican on the committee, asked that the panel hold off. Dude, just confirm her for the damn position. Duckworth, an injured Iraq war helicopter pilot, is obviously a qualified nominee who has served and sacrificed for her country. Get on with it.
