I should have said a nomination during the final year of a presidency. In any case it is not an appointment. Eisenhower did appoint at least a couple people to the Supreme Court during a Senate recess. I have just been reading about that. They had to be nominated and approved by the Senate later. I think this must be what the reference to 1960 is about. A recess appointment is not the same thing as a nomination in a final year of the presidency, in any case. I don’t understand why this is being bandied about. It’s not relevant.

One clap, two clap, three clap, forty?

By clapping more or less, you can signal to us which stories really stand out.
