Supreme Court Nominations
In light of Souter's decision to go back to New Hampshire, I thought it would be helpful to look at previous Court justices. Here is a very interesting document as it has all of the nominations from Washington-Bush that did NOT become Supreme Court justices. The first is William Patterson in 1793 and the most recent is Harriet Miers in 2005. What is really interesting is that the document includes everyone, even if, as with Miers, there were never any hearings. Here are all the "lucky" ones that made it to the Court, along with when, who nominated them and more.
