Nice collection, Nygdan, thanks! Looks like this is going to be the place to be through the next few years for the supreme court nominations.

Rock, rock on! (I really hope I have to apologize for calling McCain an idiot...)

Thanks Nygdan you always so efficient, this is a great way to get the facts and understand what our country political and judicial system is all about.

Hard decisions and harder choices to keep the balances in places.

I think this could reside as a sticky until the nomination of Judge O'Connor's replacement

posted on Jan, 7 2006 @ 08:41 PM
After a lengthy delay, it appears the 2nd set of SCOTUS nominations, this time for Judge Aliton will be starting soon.

Watching Alito: what to expect from Supreme Court nominee hearings

he Senate Judiciary Committee will hold its second Supreme Court confirmation hearing in four months when it turns next week to U.S. Appeals Court Judge Samuel Alito's nomination.

The questioning of Alito is likely to be more intense than it was in September for Chief Justice John Roberts since Alito would replace retiring Justice Sandra Day O'Connor, a moderate swing vote and the court's first female justice.

Very nice thread!

I don't know if this is appropriate for this thread, but it's about Alito's hearing, which starts tomorrow, so...
