Ralph Neas is president of People for the American Way, a national social justice organization. He was executive director of the Leadership Conference on Civil Rights when he led the successful effort to block the nomination of Robert Bork to the U.S. Supreme Court in 1987.

Our conversation with Neas is the first of a two-part look at the upcoming battle over judicial nominees. On Wednesday we hear from C. Boyden Gray, founder of the conservative group the Committee for Justice.
