Could Fourth Circuit Nominees Steve Matthews and Robert Conrad be confirmed by Memorial Day?

Probably not. Under pressure from Minority Leader Mitch McConnell, Democratic leader Harry Reid has agreed to a plan to confirm three of President Bush's appellate court nominees by Memorial Day. The question is which ones? There is pressure to confirm Matthews and Conrad, but word is that the Dems plan to let these nominees hang out there.

The WSJ has this editorial on the matter.
