Shrinking Kohl

More Alito shrinkage

Using MS Word to summarize Herbert Kohl's (D-WI) opening statement:
It has allowed women to keep private medical decisions private. As the guardian of our rights, the Supreme Court makes decisions every year which either protect the individual or leave him at the mercy of more powerful forces in our society. You have a long track record as a judge and as a public official in the Justice Department. Others raise concerns about your views on the rights of the accused when faced with the government’s enormous power in the criminal justice process. We have used the same test for each of the five previous Supreme Court nomination hearings, a test of judicial excellence. Second, judicial excellence means that a Supreme Court justice must have a sense of the values from which our core of our political- economic system goes.
