Not ONE senator is gonna change his/her vote based on these hearings. Why even bother? If they weren't televised, I'll bet you the speeches we're hearing now would be 4 seconds long instead of 40 minutes.

I don't know what's worse. That or the talking heads on the radio this morning "Why don't they just ask him if he'd overturn Roe v Wade?"

They apparently don't understand that the judicary isn't just a third branch from which laws are created.

Gotta perform for the cameras. Show the constituents how well they do their jobs!

Better this than passing legislation.

The Democrats on the Committee on the Judciary are among the most partisan in Congress...as are the Republicans. They are so for the very reasons we're seeing now; confirmation of judges.

The liberals are going to lose this and they know it now. That said, they are using this process to run their bullshit liberal propaganda to the sheeple.

During the Ginzburg hearings, she politely refused to answer the case-specific questions designed to discern how she would vote. The same rule ought to be applied to Roberts...but as we all know, that was then and this is now. A different party is now in power, and the ONLY real influence the liberals still have is in the judiciary. They will do anything to keep what little power they have and to try and set the stage for the next candidate. THAT one will be a war if Bush picks the person he ought to.

The confirmation process has turned into an ideological inquisition.

There once was a time when nominees weren't even required to appear before the committee.
