Shrinking Graham

More Alito shrinkage

Using MS Word to summarize Lindsey Graham's (R-SC) opening statement:
If every Republican member of the Judiciary Committee votes for you, and you're not mainstream, that means we are not mainstream. Roe v. Wade and abortion: If I wanted to work for Ronald Reagan, one of the things I would tell the Reagan administration is I think Roe v. Wade was wrongly decided. If you acknowledge it's a precedent the court, well, then you would be right. I don't think any American should lose the right to challenge any precedent that the Supreme Court has issued because the judge wanted to get on the court. If we do, if we go down that road, there will be no going back. Elections matter. It is no mystery as to what President Bush would do if he won. He would pick people like John Roberts and Sam Alito. It cannot surprise anybody on the other side that two people we picked worked for Ronald Reagan. President Clinton picked Ginsburg and Breyer. Judge Scalia wouldn't get 98 votes.
