Shrinking Biden

More Alito shrinkage

Using MS Word to summarize Joseph Biden's (D-DE) opening statement:
Judge, welcome. It’s an incredible honor to be nominated by a president of the United States to be associate justice of the Supreme Court.

The truth of the matter is there is significant debate among judicial scholars today as to whether or not we’ve gone off on the wrong path with regard to Supreme Court decisions. Only recently has the debate come that states’ rights are being trumped in a fundamental way, reading of the 10th Amendment and 11th Amendment. That’s a legitimate debate, totally legitimate. The one place that David is equal to Goliath is in the Supreme Court. And it’s also important to note that you’re slated to replace the first woman ever nominated to the Supreme Court. As I said, this one democratic moment when the people, through their elected representatives, get to ask questions of a president’s choice for the highest court. I thank you very much, Judge.
