Cornyn Previews Alito Hearings

If you didn’t get enough of Sen. John Cornyn on NBC News’ “Meet the Press” yesterday, then you can read all about his view on Samuel Alito on National Review today. Cornyn previews the week ahead.

Here’s a sample:

“[O]pponents of the president attempted to defeat Chief Justice Roberts, and have clearly initiated a vigorous campaign to defeat Judge Alito. Despite this pressure, Judge Alito’s nomination will succeed. His credentials are simply too impeccable, and the testimonials on his behalf too glowing.

The matter left in question, however, is how many of the 44 Democratic senators will acquiesce to special-interest groups who have provided a wealth of false allegations to discredit this fine nominee.”
