One need only look to the pioneering work of Lee Atwater for precedent. The career of Atwater -- whose shameless brand of attack politics won him the chairmanship of the Republican National Committee and inspired such hatchet men as Karl Rove -- demonstrates what character assassination really looks like.
The Bork confirmation hearings were not an instance of character assassination. They were an examination of Bork's truly radical legal and political philosophies.
As we begin the confirmation hearings for John Roberts, there is a distinction to be drawn. Inquiries regarding legal and political philosophies are entirely appropriate. Unfounded and highly personal smear campaigns are not.
The Bronner book is a fascinating look at the evolving relationship between the executive, legislative and judicial branches of government. In the future, let us not substitute revisionist historical commentary for genuine literary criticism.
