NPR Legal Affairs Correspondent Nina Totenberg reports on the impasse between Republicans and Democrats over judicial appointments. The White House says only three of President Bush's original 11 nominees have been confirmed. Democrats say they've confirmed more than 50 federal judges, and more over the last year than the Republican-controlled Senate confirmed during all of 1996 and 1997 when President Clinton was in office. Democrats argue that President Bush's nominees are too conservative.
