  •  Good question (none)
    I don't know the answer, but my favorite talking point is the 1968 episode: a Republican minority in the Senate filibustered not just any Johnson nominee but his nominee to be Chief Justice.  The filibuster lasted precisely long enough for Nixon to take office and appoint someone different.  Unfortunately, none of the Republican senators who supported that effort still sit in the Senate, though Sen. Stevens joined the Senate only a month or two afterwards.
