A young woman who wasn't even born when William Rehnquist came to the Supreme Court was among the first in line to view his coffin.
The twenty-four year old considers herself a liberal, but says she respects the influential role that Rehnquist held for more than three decades. She calls this a "pivotal time in the court's history" and said she wanted to "bear witness" to such an event.
The chief justice's personal employees were the first to make the circle around the flag-draped coffin today, followed by a stream of other court workers.
Public viewing continues until tonight, then for two more on Wednesday before the start of funeral services.
Rehnquist died Saturday after a long battle with thyroid cancer. He was 80 years old.
