There was a film in 1962 titled Advise and Consent. The film was about the politics that goes on behind the scenes of the advise and consent clause of the Constitution. That procedure was most recently demonstrated in the Sonya Sotomayer confirmation hearings.

The battle was between two powerful Senators over the confirmation of Robert A. Leffingwell played by Henry Fonda. Leffingwell was believed to be a sympathizer, and possibly a member, of the Communist party; something that does not seem to be an obstacle today.
