Having listened to Judge Alito over the past two days, I have two thoughts.
In the past, I have thought that the standard of the “best-qualified person” for the Supreme Court was mythical. Taking the evidence of his qualities and experience on display in the hearings, however, Judge Alito may in fact be the best-qualified man in the country for the job. His mastery of Supreme Court precedent, for example, is awesome.
Judge Alito has responded in an incredibly forthright manner to the senators’ questions. The Democrats will have a hard time justifying votes against him based on his alleged failure to respond to any questions he should have answered. Thus the Democratic efforts to defame Judge Alito; thus Senator Kennedy’s frolic and detour on CAP.
