“The Presidency is Just One Problem After Another”


This 1930 political cartoon by Clifford Berryman depicts President Herbert Hoover (on the left) considering his nomination of Charles Evans Hughes for Chief Justice of the U.S. Supreme Court. The President nominates someone from the legal field to be a Justice on the Supreme Court when a vacancy arises, and the Senate must vote to confirm the nomination.
