Fun fact: The very first time the newly formed Democratic Party received a Supreme Court nomination, in 1828, they refused to vote on it, so that Andrew Jackson could make an appointment the following year.

They confirmed the nomination four days after it was made, on the second-to-last day of the lame-duck session that took place after they lost the election.
