Opening statement - DeWine

Using MS Word to summarize DeWine's opening statement:
That document, of course, is our Constitution.

Former Chief Justice John Marshall once warned that, and I quote,

People made the Constitution and people can unmake it. As of late, however, many Americans believe that the Supreme Court is unmaking the very Constitution that our founders drafted.

Judges are not members of Congress. Justice White said the role of the United States Supreme Court was simply to decide cases -- to decide cases. The Constitution does not give us all the answers. Judge Roberts, causes come and go, but cases do not.

The career of Chief Justice Rehnquist certainly proves this point. Judge Roberts, as you know, those words are yours. You, sir, have the talent, experience, and humility to be an outstanding member of the United States Supreme Court.
