Abstract:

Scholars of the presidency have long embraced the notion that presidents can be ranked in terms of historical greatness based on their performance in the oval office. Scholars of the other branches of government, however, have been reluctant to employ such rankings. There is some evidence that this is beginning to change. Abraham (2008), for example, notes that some judicial scholars rank subsets of Supreme Court justices—specifically, the various “courts,” such as “The Warren Court” and “The Berger Court”)—based on the impact of their rulings. In this paper I capitalize on the availability of Supreme Court rankings and ask: Do great presidents appoint great justices? I begin addressing this question by calculating rankings (from 1-112) of individual Supreme Court justices. Next, I utilize scaling techniques to build a model that attempts to determine whether or not “great” presidents appoint “great” Supreme Court justices. Ultimately, this research represents a novel exploration of the relationship between the executive branch and the Supreme Court.
