Roe v. Wade (Biden vs. Palin)

Additional Couric interview footage featuring both Biden and Palin discussing their views of Roe v. Wade, and any U.S. Supreme Court decisions they disagree with.

Biden talks about the Violence Against Women Act (which allowed an abused woman to sue her abuser in federal court) and how the Supreme Court struck it down saying that they did not have jurisdiction to enforce it... (which he disagreed with...)

Palin, on the other hand, couldn't name any other Supreme Court cases...

Yes, I know that a regular citizen probably couldn't name any other might not be able to name Supreme Court cases either... but I don't want just anybody serving as my country's Vice President or President. Do you?

And what about Miranda v. Arizona? (right to remain silent, etc)

Or Gideon v. Wainwright? (right to counsel for criminal defendants)

OK - but to be fair the question was "which SCOTUS decisions do you DISAGREE with?" And Brown, Miranda and Gideon are all pretty great cases that people in general would not disagree with...

So, I put forth: Dred Scott v. Sandford -- The Dred Scott case ruled that slaves could never be US citizens... A decision that every US president or VP candidate should vehemently disagree with! (As a 'law dork aside,' the Dred Scott case was overruled in what are referred to as the Slaughterhouse cases in the late 1800s.)

Not a supreme court case, you would think she could quote the Scopes Monkey Trial since goes to her heart.....
