The US Supreme Court

Philip Terzian asks "I wonder if Rob Gaudet would have changed his registration back to Republican when Lyndon Johnson (the last Democratic president before Bush the Elder to appoint a Supreme Court justice) tried to elevate his crony,the crooked corporate lawyer Abe Fortas, from associate justice to Chief Justice of the United States. Even the Democratic Senate of 1968 couldn't countenance that".

My question: I wonder what Hank Greely says about that.
