"It is offensive to suggest that a potential justice of the Supreme Court must pass some presumed test of judicial philosophy. It is even more offensive to suggest that a potential justice must pass the litmus test of any single-issue interest group."
-- Senator Edward M. Kennedy, 1981, at the confirmation hearing of Sandra Day O'Connor (via QandO).
'The key question is whether [John Roberts] will uphold core constitutional and statutory principles," Senator Edward M. Kennedy, Democrat of Massachusetts, said in a speech on the Senate floor. 'Americans deserve to know if nominees will be on the side of justice and individual liberties, or if they will side with powerful special interests."
-- Senator Edward M. Kennedy, 2005, quoted in today's Boston Globe article, "Democrats Vow to Learn Court Pick's Abortion Views."
