Washington Outlook: Capital Wrapup

THE JUDICIARY

There aren't many things about the Bush Administration that Bill Clinton wants to emulate, but he is likely to retain Bush's system that gives the White House Counsel's office, not the Justice Dept., control over judicial appointments. Following the Bush model, a deputy counsel probably will be in charge of the process. Denver attorney James M. Lyons, who chaired a national lawyers-for-Clinton campaign committee, is a leading candidate for the post. Keeping the process in the White House will make it easier for First Lawyers Bill and Hillary Clinton to become deeply involved. They'll be busy: The new Administration is inheriting more than 100 judicial vacancies, and with turnover running at 7% a year, Clinton could name 40% of all judges in one term.Edited by Stephen H.
