"Collaboration with WGN radio. In Boston supreme court justices are intended to be impartial presiding over judicial body. That's above the partisan fray, then that image has been eroded over the years justices have worked hard to keep appearances in order to maintain the integrity of the highest court in the land. So did that effort get a raced entirely on Thursday? Professor, Barbara Perry is the presidential. Studies director at university of Virginia's Miller center, professor Perry. Thanks for coming on the show. It's my pleasure. Professor perry. From your vantage point watching the hearings the other day, it has is this something that's unique. Have we ever seen something like the the hearings that we had on Thursday? No. As is so much the case in the Trump era. It is unprecedented. If you mix together where we are now in the Trump era with social media and twenty four seven coverage, and certainly television on the scene and the mixture of tribal politics and sexual situations. And it's just explosives at it's just that so called perfect storm. I wanna play specifically something that Senator Lindsey Graham Republican from South Carolina said about the process itself. Hope the American people can see through this sham. God, I hate to say it 'cause these have been my friends. Let me tell you when it comes to this. You're looking for fair process. You came to the wrong town at the wrong time friend, and we reached a new tipping point in the polarization of the Senate. And if so can we ever? Go back. I think the answer to the first is yes, we've reached a new tipping point. And the answer to the second question is I don't see us going back from this. We've crossed the Rubicon. Thank sad to say, particularly because it was Lindsey Graham. I thought of is his good dear in late friend, John McCain because as we know John McCain could be irascible and and could get angry, but he did try to do that crossing of the aisle and the kinds of language that Senator Graham was using yesterday. I just I how can you go back from that their relationships that that can never be repaired. It's like a terrible divorce among these senators and certainly between the two parties. So is that where we're headed to in terms of this process? Do you think we're going to a point where every nomination is going to feel like a war? There is one bit of good news. I think on that is I made reference to. To swing seats. And I used to refer to this as the swing seat politics. And that swing seat politics has always been more vehement. I if you think back to the Robert Bork hearings, and the fact that he went down to defeat in a newly democratic at that time new majority of the Democrats one thousand nine hundred eighty seven and they took that opportunity to put him down to defeat because he was so conservative had such a long track record did not present himself well in front of the committee and so down to defeat he went he was not confirmed. That was for the swing seat that have been held by Justice Lewis Powell who had retired also think back to win Justice o'conner laughed Alito made it through but Ted Kennedy tried to mount a filibuster. It wasn't successful. But that was another turning point. And now for the swing seat of Justice Kennedy. It was predictable. Maybe not the level of the immense. Maybe not the exact circumstances of this sexual assault charge against the nominee. But I think the good news. If there. Is a little bright Ray of hope shining through the darkness. It is that perhaps when it is not a swing seat at issue. The politics will not be as strained and difficult and nasty. That's nice of you to believe we thought like as we all need to. Well, let's let's let's Santa Claus for a really. Let's rewind for a minute and take sort of a thirty thousand foot look on public perceptions of the supreme court, what do Americans think of when they think of this a premium court, especially how they think of these of the other branches of government. This is one of my favorite topics is both a scholar of the supreme court and the presidency and a bit of the congress as well as that I've traced this over the last quarter century and the good news for the court is that it has almost always been at the top. And you might say, well, that's a low bar to meet because look at where congress typically falls and approval rating sometimes in the single digits sometimes at best in the teens, but the court has been at at an average of over fifty percent of approval rating. So most recently this court and a Gallup poll came out at fifty three percent. Just after Justice Kennedy retire. Tired and the naming of Brad Kavanagh to fill the seat. It was up to fifty three percent. Fact, it had tracked upward over the last nine years or so on and part of this is because the court has always been viewed by the American people as typically being above the muck and mire of daily politics. And do you think what happened this week? Will have an impact on public opinion. Polling. Do you think it will actually change fundamentally changed the way that people see the court? I think you're keyword. There is fundamentally I'm not sure that one day and one hearing can destroy the history of this great institution. But it could chip away certainly at how people view the court, and for those Americans in the tribe, and we have to call it tribal now who yesterday did not believe judge Cavanaugh and believe that he if he is concerned. If confirmed that he will be a sexual assault perpetrator on the supreme court. They will have to lose faith in that institution. I am sorry to say, how do you think? The other justices the ones who are sitting right now on this court viewed this they must be shuttering. I can't think that they could see this in any other way. Now, having said that Justice Thomas has stated that when he arrived at the court after his very controversial here that he was told just leave that behind. You are welcome here. We're putting it behind were moving on. And that is the good thing about the court. But one does have to question, for example, how will Justice Ginsburg, do you this person? I she is known as a pioneer of feminism a pioneer of gender equality. We should also state that she was best friends with Ninoska Scalia on the opposite side of the spectrum. But we also know that they respected each other and they respected each other's politics. And intellect. Arbroath? Thank you so much for coming in. And speaking with me today, it is my honor to speak with you on this very important subject. Professor, Barbara Perry is presidential. Studies director at university of Virginia's Miller center. Because of the fluidity of today's news from the Senate Judiciary committee. We are hearing. The takeaway today in the noon hour, stay with us. One o'clock. We'll bring you fresh air here on k QA public radio. As the country turned its eyes to the tumultuous confirmation process of judge Brad Kavanagh, the culture of Washington DC itself has come under scrutiny, my colleague Tanzania Vegas with embassador. Carol Moseley Braun, former US Senator from Illinois and the former US ambassador to New Zealand and Samoa she was the first female African American US Senator she I decided to run for the Senate back in nineteen Ninety-two. Well, our incumbent Senator who I knew actually had announced that he was inclined to vote for the supreme court nomination of Justice Clarence Thomas, and this was at a time in my life. When I was particularly struck by the difference between the Thomas nomination and Thurgood Marshall in the Warren corks, my entire life has been made possible by the Warren court. And so I was annoyed that he didn't understand why this was not a good thing. And that my constituency my community generally was upset about it. And he just didn't seem to get it. And so I decided to run for the Senate. I was qualified for the job, and I won and it was a breakthrough. And of course, when you arrived in Washington, did you have any initial impressions of the city or its people other than texts of evil. Tell me how you really feel. Washington was a different universe. I come from Illinois. And I always thought that you know, the Chicago was the epicenter of the world. And and so it was an adjustment. Really for me to to understand the book that the that Washington requires that is to say how people interpret things is different than how they are interpreted here at the local level here in Chicago. And that was that was a learning experience for me and ambassador, you were the first along with Senator Barbara mcculskey the first woman to wear pants on the Senate floor. Can you take us back to that day? I can. And here's the thing, you know. Ignorance is bliss. I went to work. I went to the Senate floor not knowing there was this unwritten rule that women had to wear dresses. I didn't know I thought I was looking sharp that day. I had a pantsuit and it was matched. And I thought looked really nice, and and and it causes this great stir when I went to vote, and I had no idea what's going on. Then some of the women staffers came to me and said, well, we told them that if if the senators can wear pants and social. It was like, okay a breakthrough. So I was really happy about the the outcomes from that. But it was not like I intended to wear pants to make a statement. I was just going to work you you were experiencing the Anita hill in need help. Try ITO hearings inspired you to run for office. And I'm watching them myself and thinking we haven't come that far. If we're still here today. Why do you think the message to women in Washington is still so fraught change hasn't really happened as much as some of us would have expected or hoped, but it is happening. And so I want to be optimistic and positive about this. The change is happening. It may be incremental and slow too slow for people like me, I'd like to see, you know, half and half. Mike, see women elected across the board. But if that hasn't gotten it hasn't happened yet, but it will. And so I think particularly as young women come along. They are not content to be relegated to the sidelines of to the or to the ladies chambers. They expect to be able to participate in governance. Just like anybody else, they expect in the words immortal words of the late Aretha Franklin our ESP CT. So that really at the end of the day is what it is that we're looking at at the end of the day. Every politician follows who what where they think the voters are. And so they will make the changes and the process the parties will change in response to what these what women want more with ambassador,.
