FILE - In this Sept. 15, 1987 file photo, Judge Robert Bork, nominated by President Ronald Reagan to be an associate justice of the Supreme Court, is sworn before the Senate Judiciary Committee on Capitol Hill at his confirmation hearing. Supreme Court nominations became politically contentious about 222 years ago when the Senate voted down George Washington’s choice for chief justice. Republicans point to 1987, when Democrats led the way in rejecting Reagan's nomination of Bork for the high court. The 58-42 vote against Bork came after a full hearing and Senate debate.
