Biden vs Sowell

Not often does the public get to view their elected official’s intellectual abilities tested against a distinguished scholar. Fortunately, there does exist an exchange about judicial activism between Senator Joe Biden and standout economist Thomas Sowell at the Robert Bork Supreme Court nomination hearing in 1987. Here, one can see the mindset of Biden well before the widespread questioning of his mental acuity. The exchange is made more relevant considering Biden’s estimated 91 percent chance of winning the Democratic primary majority.
