Specter: While You Were Reading Specter’s Wsj Op-Ed Today

I was reading his 1994 “Why Supreme Court nominees must answer the questions” op-ed in the Washington Times. If Hugh Hewitt wants to return to pre-Bork times, Specter’s not the man to lead that fight. Read here. I also submit to you this 1988 Washington Post piece. Specter quoted as saying that Bork committee proceedings “‘have established the important precedent of the Senate’s right to reject’ a nominee soley on the basis of his judicial philosophy.”
