Clinton Library release of papers on Ginsburg, Breyer nominations offer insight, some fun

“Once the president has chosen, and the Senate has confirmed, and the black robe is hanging in the lockers just beyond the grand courtroom, all the judging is done by the justices of the Supreme Court. For as long as they want. But until then, it seems, almost everyone has a say on the qualifications of those who might sit at the mahogany bench. That includes the young lawyer just a month out of law school who 21 years ago sized up then-appeals court judge Stephen G. Breyer as a “rather cold fish” who was unlikely to be “a great Supreme Court justice.” (via The Washington Post)
