Judiciary Committee at Work

Hmm. Well, so on Monday, the Senate began its hearings with Judge John Roberts. Apparently, it was all very well choreographed (article by Todd Purdum and Robin Toner). Judge Roberts had a lovely opening statement, Linda Greenhouse reports – befitting a brilliant appellate attorney. (seriously, he seemed very good, from what I’ve seen of the video clip of his speech – he obviously practiced a lot). But, as the NY Times’ Purdum and Toner article notes: “Senator Graham told Mr. Roberts: ‘You have been described as brilliant, talented and well qualified, and that’s by Democrats. The question is, is that enough in 2005 to get confirmed? Maybe not.'” Definitely interesting stuff.
