Alito Confirmation Countdown Begins
Looks like we're gearing up for Alito's confirmation hearings.
Fox News has an in-depth piece on the latest, including the "Democrat's key witness" who confirms he won't be testifying about Alito's "controversial" anti-affirmative action CAP membership, but "can't elaborate." Can someone explain to me why the Democrats need witnesses? Nevermind.
Reuters has "Alito's fellow judges back his U.S. high-court bid." That must have hurt them to post, or they're counting on some juicy Alito dirt to surface soon.
ABC News notes "Confirmation Hearing Will Be No Walk in the Park for Alito." Just, "Duh."
The Seattle Post-Intelligencer writes "O'Connor, Alito differ in style, views." Which, on reading, the O'Connor bio and comparison angle sounds oddly familiar. I think they ran this same article in the early Roberts days, before he was bumped up to replace Rhenquist, and are re-running it now with Alito in place of Roberts. Still good stuff.
