"if You Take a Look at Some of the Things That Got Stopped in the Congress, There's a Lot of Work That the American People Want Democrats and Republicans to Team Up on That's Not Getting Done. If You Take a Look at Judges, for Example, There Are Many Cases Where the Judges That the President Named Has Bipartisan Support. They Would Have Been Passed on the Floor of the Senate Had They Only Been Allowed to Come to the Senate Floor. Even in a Democrat-Controlled Senate, There Were Enough Democrats to Confirm the President's Judges. But the Process Was Used to Keep Them Bottled Up and Killed in Committee. I Think Those Days May Be Over."
