The body of Supreme Court Justice Ruth Bader Ginsburg will lie in repose at the Supreme Court Wednesday and Thursday. President Trump says he'll announce his nominee on Saturday at the White House — the start of what's expected to be an epic political battle smack in the middle of the election campaign.

Host Robin Young gets some historical perspective on what's about to happen with Julian Zelizer, professor of history and public affairs at Princeton University.

This segment aired on September 22, 2020.
