The White House as posted an "infographic" on President Obama's Judicial Nominees: Historic Successes + Historic Delays.
Also called Building a Supreme Court for the 21st Century, the graphic features images of Justices Sonio Sotomayor and Elena Kagan, with quotations from the President. It also displays pie charts showing percentages of women, African American, Hispanic, and Asian American judges nominated by the last three Presidents.
