Like I mentioned in the debate thread, Biden used the Supreme Court round to make a super-subtle reference to his borking of Robert Bork. Biden said:
When Hillary's husband asked me for his advice when he was appointing people, I wanted to go to people and so did he–we couldn't. Four people turned it down. We wanted to get someone who, in fact, knew what it was to live life. Knew what it was—not as some intellectual feast.
Dial the Wayback Machine for 20 years and two months ago…
ALAN K. SIMPSON, Republican of Wyoming: And now I have one final question. Why do you want to be an Associate Justice of the United States Supreme Court?
BORK: Senator, I guess the answer to that is that I have spent my life in the intellectual pursuits in the law… and I think it would be an intellectual feast just to be there and to read the briefs and discuss things with counsel and discuss things with my colleagues.
It was Biden's greatest triumph in the Judiciary Committee, so maybe he assumes we all remember it this clearly.
