Guests: TBA The Senate hearing on John Ashcroft's nomination for attorney general so far has focussed on abortion, school desegregation and guns. But the hearing may become even more contentious when Missouri Supreme Court Judge Ronnie White testifies. As senator, Ashcroft led the fight to block White's appointment to a federal judgeship. Join Juan Williams and guests for a report and analysis of the Ashcroft hearing.
