A look back at another nomination for Supreme Court Justice. Robert Bork was President Reagan's pick to replace Lewis Powell. From the get-go the nomination was questioned, and when time came for Senate Confirmation hearings, Reagan's perceived shoe-in was quickly derailing.

Here are a series of news reports about the confirmation hearings with highlights of some of the days sessions from September 15 - October 2, 1987. I hope to run some of the hearings shortly as well as run reports on the outcome.

But here's a teaser for now.
