The New York Times editorial boards published three opinion-eds on the Obama, Trump and Biden presidencies. They were all about “blue slips”, which is a Senate procedure that permits a senator to block the president’s nomination for a judicial position if the nominee comes from their state.
Republicans were in minority in Senate during Obama’s administration. The Times’ editorial board called for an end to the blue slip system. The Trump presidency saw Democrats in minority in both the Senate and the House of Representatives.
