When Ginsburg was confirmed the GOP held 44 seats in the Senate, enough to filibuster the nomination by Bill Clinton. ( originally nominated to the federal bench by president peanut.)

Jesse Helms was one of 3 votes against her.

Fred, I had suspected that Helms was one of the "no" votes. It should have been all 44. Of course, that was back in the days when there was wishful thinking-- that if "our side" played nice, then they would play nice. We have seen how that worked out. Helms looks better and better with each passing year.
