US Supreme Court Hears Election Case

Hosted by
The US Supreme Court may decide the case, but will it determine who wins the election? Lawyers for Bush and Gore have made their arguments and answered a host of tough questions. Will it make any difference to the outcome of the presidential campaign? We hear from our own lawyers for both sides, including former Supreme Court law clerk and author Eddie Lazarus, and from John Dean, who watched another supreme court deal with Richard Nixon's Watergate tapes. (Rebroadcast from today's To The Point.)
  • Newsmaker: An Observer in the US Supreme Court - For the first time ever, the US Supreme Court has released a full audio recording of a history-making proceeding, the arguments over this year's presidential election in Florida.
