I Will Follow The Constitution. Now Vote.

Many are commenting on the judicial screening process of the Senate. Henry Mark Holzer in an essay says this inquiry has nothing to do with a nominees political views. He says:

The Judiciary Committee and the full Senate are entitled to know from President Bush’s nominee for an Associate Justiceship on the Supreme Court of the United States basically one thing: what does John Roberts believe is the constitutional function of courts in general, and the Supreme Court in particular—and of the judges who sit on those courts.

On reflection upon Thomas Sowell's latest article Judge's 'views', Skip March writes the following:

Senate Democrats once again are able to frame the issue. That is the nomination process is about determining the nominees political/hot button issue views rather than judicial temperament. They're even getting away with bringing his faith into the process, which is in direct conflict with that pesky little Constitution. Republicans are once again compliant (e.g. turning over 75,000 White House documents). They are also letting their focus slip by falling into the Democratic strategy trap of arguing the political/hot button issue (e.g. Roe Vs. Wade). They need to stay on focus about judicial temperament. This will be an educational process for the American people as we have been indoctrinated into the Constitutional legitimacy of judicial activism over past decades.
