11th Circuit Obamacare case -- three-panel judge, two Clinton appointees

Stanley Marcus -- Clinton 

Joel F. Dubina -- George H. W. Bush

Frank M. Hull -- Clinton

So the odds may not look so good in the appeals case. However, Marcus was appointed to the district court by President Reagan before being bumped up by Clinton.

What's more, a quick loss may be the best thing that can happen to the Obamacare challenge, since it's bound to end up before the Supreme Court anyway.
