How justices do in the Senate

This NPR opinion column has some interesting historical perspective for those looking ahead to the Roberts hearings this fall -- it reviews the confirmation votes of the current Supreme Court Justices and lists who voted against them. Several were confirmed unanimously, but others had anywhere from around a third to nearly half the Senators against them. Also some other historical tidbits about courts and legislatures.
