  • Anyone Watching The Roberts Hearing?

    If anyone is watching this on the tube, would you mind just giving us your overall impression of what is happening? Are any of the democrats scoring points? How's Roberts holding up to the scrutiny thus far?

    Thanks

    Before the cable went out, Specter was having a hard-time getting Ted Kennedy to shut up when Roberts was trying to answer a question.....

          No surprise there.

          Kennedy likes the sound of his own voice. He's Yak's hero though...

              Listened a bit.

              Big item thus far is Roberts' statement of belief in the "right to privacy" in the Constitution, protected (according to a commenter) substantively, not just procedurally, by 80 years of precedent. In response to Specter's questioning.

              Some heated discussion between Kennedy and Roberts over Roberts' writings on discrimination in financial aid, college admission, re: early 80's case.

              Biden roughing him up on the 14th amendment a bit.

                  Did Roberts maintain his composure when being questioned by Kennedy and Biden?

                  What was the controversy over the 14th Amendment?

                    The use of the word "Hearing" in the thread title is unfair to deaf people.
                    If you believe in something sacrifice a hobo to it or don't bother.
