Law quote of the day (Senate confirmation process)

In keeping with the current Supreme Court nomination and confimation process...

"There is no possibility of an adequate judgment of judicial philosophy by a group of senators, nor is that fact surprising. Senators, even the best of them, simply do not have much experience with constitutional law either as practitioners or as professors. The worst of them know only what they like and suppose that is the Constitution."
- Judge Robert Bork (after his failed nomination to the Supreme Court in 1987)
