Yet Democrats see a lasting upside from what they did: allowing President Barack Obama to shape the federal judiciary for years to come. Democrats in 2013 scaled back the power of the Senate minority to throw roadblocks in front of a president’s nominees. In the years that followed, the Senate confirmed almost 100 f...
