Slideshow: A History of Modern Supreme Court Nominations

While Republican leaders in the Senate say they won't bring a Supreme Court nominee to the floor, President Barack Obama says he plans to nominate someone. Justice Antonin Scalia died at age 79 on Saturday.  

Take a look through the most recent high court nominations via CQ Roll Call's photo archives. And yes, the first one is from 1938 because we couldn't help ourselves (the original caption called the cameras "both sounds and stills").

Photos: Beau Biden Through the Years

Beau Biden, the 46-year-old son of the vice president, died Saturday following a fight with brain cancer.  

"Beau's life was defined by service to others," a statement from the office of Vice President Joseph R. Biden Jr. said. "As a young lawyer, he worked to establish the rule of law in war-torn Kosovo. A major in the Delaware National Guard, he was an Iraq War veteran and was awarded the Bronze Star. As Delaware’s Attorney General, he fought for the powerless and made it his mission to protect children from abuse."  

Man on the Run

Runners from Capitol Hill and beyond descended Wednesday morning on the banks of the Anacostia River for the 34th annual ACLI Capital Challenge.  

On a surprisingly cool day, members of Congress and the executive branch were joined in the 3-mile run at Anacostia Park by their staff, private industry and representatives from the Fourth Estate, including a number of CQ Roll Callers.  

Capitol Lens: Darling Ducks

If you need some cute to start your week, Photo Editor Bill Clark captured these 2-day-old ducklings in Lower Senate Park on May 14. The 10 ducklings swam in the pool and walked across the plaza trying to keep up with their mother.  


How to Get a Front-Page Photo (Video)

Capitol Lens: Remember


Standing before the Henry J. Daly Metropolitan Police Headquarters — so named for a slain officer — police officers remembered another one of their own Monday, Sgt. Clinton Holtz, a 6-foot-11-inch Capitol Police sergeant with a lot of friends and a lot of nicknames.  

Capitol Lens: V-E Day

Photo Editor Bill Clark and Staff Photographer Tom Williams attended the Arsenal of Democracy flyover Friday and captured some stunning moments.  

Many veterans from WWII were on the Mall to watch the commemorative event. According to the organizing group, the flyover included dozens of World War II aircraft flying in 15 historical warbird formations representing the major battles, from Pearl Harbor through the final air assault on Japan.
