How significant Stickler's rejection is to the White House was revealed in yesterday's Press Conference with White House Press Secretary Tony Snow. Asked by AP Correspondent Nedra Pickler if the President was going to do a recess appointment of Stickler, Snow replied:
You have to let know earlier on ones like that, Nedra. I'll go back and work the phones. I have no earthly clue.Well, gosh Tony, that was obvious when the President nominated him in the first place.
