Richard Nixon’s four appointments to the Supreme Court signaled the end of the activist Court under Chief Justice Earl Warren and marked significant changes in the selection process itself. Today’s panel, whose experience extends from Nixon through George W. Bush, examines how these changes came about—and still influence how Supreme Court candidates are selected. Presented in partnership with the Richard Nixon Foundation.
