Is the U.S. Supreme Court the Ultimate Guardian of Individual Liberties? (Barbara Jordan - 7:17)

On September 17, 1987, former U.S. Representative Barbara Jordan testified before the U.S. Senate Judiciary Committee in opposition to the controversial nomination of Robert Bork to the U.S. Supreme Court. In this excerpt she responds to a question from Sen. Gordon Humphrey (R-NH) with a defense of the view that the Supreme Court - not the Constitution alone - is the ultimate guardian of individual liberties.
