  •  He's dodging (none)
    Biden is great on this. Roberts doesn't deserve a vote - if he won't answer the question.
    •  Biden is tough... (none)
      and the "he's filibustering" line was good...

      But it is clear that he's running for President in 2008.  The "I wrote the legislation" comment was a little over the top for me.

      •  he wrote they legislation (none)
        and the goddammed activist court over turned it. Wouldn't you be pissed too?

      •  Except ... (none)
        ... that it is true.  As Chairman of the Senate Judiciary Committee, Joe Biden authored the Violence Against Women Act (VAWA).  Then-Rep. Chuck Schumer, who at the time chaired the House Judiciary Subcommittee on Crime, authored the House version, and carried the VAWA in the House.  In a clash between two gigantic egos, Biden's version prevailed, and today we have VAWA.
    •  Biden is pissed (none)
      at the activism of the court.

      Despite claims by the right the court has overturned too much legislation in recent years.

      Biden worked for years on violence against women, and it was destroyed by these guys.
