In 1987, conservative Appeals Court Judge Robert Bork was nominated by Ronald Reagan to the Supreme Court. After a strong campaign by liberals, including Sen. Edward Kennedy (D-MA), against Bork's nomination, the US Senate voted 58-42 not to confirm him for the high court. This program aired three weeks before the Senate vote.
