If one considers the word "accomplishment" to include negative items, like ruining the economy and getting us involved in the Iraq war, Bush's judicial appointments are nothing in comparison.


I wonder how the ethnic numbers would work out if you counted all nominees, not just those confirmed and on the bench. Didn't the Democrats stall several of Bush's female and nonwhite nominees, such as Estrada (Hispanic), Saad (Arab), and Carolyn Kuhl (female)? Also, to the extent that Janice Rogers Brown got held up so long, didn't that make clear to Bush that white male conservatives could get confirmed more quickly than those considered more dangerous to Leahy et al?

Thanks for the good article. I've been looking for precisely this kind of information.
