Biden Treats Alito Differently Than Ginsburg

Sen. Joe Biden (D.-Del.) to Judge Alito during today’s opening statements:

"And that’s what these hearings are about in my view. In the coming days, we want to know about what you believe, judge, how you view the constitution…"

Sen. Biden to Justice Ginsburg during her confirmation hearing:

“[Y]ou not only have a right to choose what you will answer and not answer, but in my view you should not answer a question of what your view will be on an issue that clearly is going to come before the Court in 50 different forms, probably.”
