And now the president has the chance to do it again with Sen.
President Trump has reportedly narrowed his short list of potential Supreme Court nominees to just three people this week; setting the stage for his historic announcement that could come as early as Monday.
Already some very fine parsing of the potential nominees' records is taking place. The person, who was not authorized to speak publicly and spoke on condition of anonymity, said Trump has spent the weekend discussing his options with allies amid frenzied last-minute lobbying. Kethledge and Kavanaugh both clerked for Kennedy; Barrett was a law clerk for the late Justice Antonin Scalia, who was replaced by the Trump-nominated Neil Gorsuch past year. He has served as a law clerk to outgoing Justice Kennedy, and to two other appellate judges.
"I get an extra 20 IQ points from being in that office", Kethledge told the website Above the Law.
In working out the timeframe, it's worth noting that the Senate will be dealing with an end of September deadline if they're going to get a nominee on the Court before Congress is scheduled to recess for the campaign and before the new Supreme Court term begins on Monday, October 1st. The son of a former US solicitor general, Lee clerked for Supreme Court Justice Samuel Alito, served as a federal prosecutor, and was general counsel to then-Utah Gov. John Huntsman (R.) from 2005 to 2006.

"The key insight", Sutton concluded, "is that no government may permanently deny rights based on generalizations stemming from classifications about any individual who once was institutionalized".
Kavanaugh, who is 53 and sits on the federal appeals court in Washington, is supported by White House Counsel Don McGahn, who is supervising the search, two of the people said.
"She was stunned to see the sheer crushing volume of texts and emails", recalled longtime friend and University of Michigan Law School colleague Sarah C. Zearfoss. It is our conviction that the best nominee on your list of 25 prospects is Judge Amy Coney Barrett.
The 2018 midterm election map has created a unique situation for Trump, who will look to use political pressure on red state Democrats on the fence about his nominee. "Presidents must pore over the thinnest bodies of evidence on these people, trying to discern their convictions and ability from scattered cases and the recommendations of others".

Hardiman was a runner-up for the vacancy ultimately filled by Gorsuch.
"A year and a half ago, I said it was a top priority", he said about confirming judges, "and it remains so". As a former clerk who worked at the Supreme Court for Justice Scalia and as a Notre Dame law professor, Barrett has the necessary training, knowledge, and philosophy to serve on the Supreme Court. He is the only evangelical Christian on the list of nominees Trump is considering; everyone else is Catholic.
Mom-of-seven Judge Amy Coney Barrett, 46, a former Notre Dame law professor, became a right-wing heroine previous year when she stood up to grilling from Senate Democrats over her religious faith. Some conservative groups don't trust Barry because she wrote an opinion striking down a New Jersey abortion regulation in 2000, and they hope she has no influence over her brother's choice.
Conservatives have rallied around Barrett, citing her right-leaning and deeply religious viewpoints. The stakes are certainly higher with a Supreme Court Justice, but her vote would go before all but one of the same Senators who just voted for her confirmation.
