  •  Excellent - that is the line we should push (none)
    Because Roberts doesn't have much of a record of judicial decisions, we need to get to know him better. Roberts' cases that he worked on as a lawyer give us an idea of his political philosophy, but not his judicial philosophy. We need to know if he will be genuinely fair and impartial.

    This is a perfect example of why the Constitution requires the advice and consent of the Senate. The Senate has a duty as well as a right to thoroughly investigate nominees.

    The one thing I'd add is that the Senate Dems had better grill him intensely on Bush v. Gore. We probably can't stop the GOP from putting him in their Supreme Court sleeper cell, but at least we can put him on notice that he'll be watched. And maybe if he is forced to say all the right things during confirmation, he'll be more likely to do them on the court.

    The flag, when it is in such condition that it is no longer a fitting emblem for display, should be destroyed in a dignified way, preferably by burning.
