Institutional Standoffs Not All That Rare

Chris Maddaloni/CQ Roll Call
Sens. Patrick Leahy (left) and Dick Durbin are pushing the Supreme Court to televise its proceedings, which is one of the many current conflicts among the branches of government.

For example with the Holder issue, “This isn’t both Democrats and Republicans in the House calling on the attorney general to cooperate. These are House Republicans calling on a Democratic administration to cooperate. The fact that House Democrats have opposed it suggests to me that it’s not really huge constitutional crises here, but they are endemic to periods of divided government.”
