It appears to me that liberals basically want two main things from a Supreme Court justice: a willingness to keep abortion legal and a willingness to keep prayer out of government high school football games and government high school graduation ceremonies. That being said, I wish the Left and the Right would both move beyond abortion being the almost sole test for a judicial nominee. There are tons of other issues besides abortion. I continue to support the confirmation of Judge Roberts. I think he is well qualified and handled himself well before the Senate Judiciary Committee this week. Also, I do not want a judge to be telling publicly how he/she would rule on a case before it comes to the court. That would be like a judge or a juror telling the accused before a trial begisns that "I've already made up my mind so any arguments presented on your behalf will have no effect on my decision." What I want in a justice is someone who will listen to the arguments that are made and then rule based on what the law says and if the constitutionality of a law is at question to rule on its constitutionality based on what the constitution actually says, not what he/she may want it to say. I think Judge Roberts will do this.
