Sen. Arlen Specter, D-Pa., has been a longtime advocate of televising sessions of the U.S. Supreme Court, a quest that has repeatedly fallen on deaf ears at the high court. But in a speech on the Senate floor Thursday, Specter noted that the justices haven't exactly been camera-shy of late, appearing in television interviews and a recent C-SPAN documentary. Specter is hoping to line up his colleagues behind a resolution he introduced Thursday that would get the "sense of the Senate" on cameras in the Court.
