Democrat President Bill Clinton nominated two of them.
She wrote in the memo: A well regulated Militia, being necessary to the security of a free State, the right of the people to keep and bear Arms shall not be infringed. To these would be opposed a militia amounting to near half a million of citizens with arms in their hands, officered by men chosen from among themselves, fighting for their common liberties, and united and conducted by governments possessing their affections and confidence.
Besides the advantage of being armed, which the Americans possess over the people of almost every other nation, the existence of subordinate governments, to which the people are attached, and by which the militia officers are appointed, forms a barrier against the enterprises of ambition, more insurmountable than any which a simple government of any form can admit of.

The election in November is anything but a sure thing and it is quite possible that the USA will have Hillary Clinton as its next President.
