The Longest Time

President Bush nominated Terrence boyle to the U.S. Court of Appeals in May 2001. Yet there still has been no hearing on his nominatiuon because Senator Edwards refuses to return his blue slip, as Howard Bashman notes (from his new digs, no less). Were three years not long enough for Boyle to wait, consider that he was first nominated to the Fourth Circuit by President George H.W. Bush over 11 years ago.
