Stats on Judges

from Neal Boortz:

The following list shows the percentages of presidential appellate court nominees who were eventually confirmed by the Senate:

Harry Truman 100%
Dwight Eisenhower 92.3%
John Kennedy 77.3%
Lyndon Johnson 96.2%
Richard Nixon 87%
Gerald Ford 81.8%
Jimmy Carter 100%
Ronald Reagan 95%
G.H.W. Bush 95.7%
Bill Clinton 86.4%
George Bush 53.1%

Boortz notes that W's score is actually sub 50% as he renominated two of Clinton's late appointments as a gesture of goodwill.

Boortz also thinks the Republicans will cave on the constitutional option and I am afraid he's right.
