Will Kay and Big John give Obama's Texas nominees the blue slip special?
CQ Politics reports that Sen. John Cornyn has stated in plain words that if the White House does not give his and Sen.

“It’s not my intention to make threats or pick a fight,” Sen. Cornyn said. But if the senators’ suggestions are not considered, the withholding of blue slips is “certainly always an option.”
