Over the next few weeks, you are going to hear a lot of questions posed to John Roberts regarding how he will rule on a particular case. As I have said on our radio broadcast, it is inappropriate to require a judicial nominee to say how he will vote in a particular case. Ive included with this report a transcript of what Justice Ginsburg said when she was before the Senate Judiciary Committee. Senator Biden specifically stated that she should not answer questions on how she will vote in a particular case. We are advocating that John Roberts maintain this same position.

So, Senator Biden tells Justice Ginsburg, and I think correctly so, to not answer a specific question on how she is going to rule on a case. So heres what Justice Ginsburg said when being pressed about the abortion issue.
