Ladies and Gentlemen, the Legal & Political Forum is closed. From the rules of the Law & Civil Rights Forum:
Discussions in this forum will be centered upon legal issues as they relate to the 2nd Amendment and other Civil Rights. Constitutional law (which would encompass separation of powers, the impairment of contracts clause, the full faith and credit clause, etc., as well as the Bill of Rights) will also be on topic. Straight political discussions or partisan politics will be off topic.
Senate confirmation hearings are nothing but partisan politics.
