Roberts Confirmation Hearing

The only thing I need to hear John Roberts say during his confirmation hearing is:

I believe in the limited exercise of judicial powers. I believe the Supreme Court needs to measure every case against the Constitution and the Framers' intent therein. The Constitution is the law of the land and the standard by which each case should be measured. It is my intention as a Justice to be fair and open-minded. I will afford each case the same scrutiny and thought.

He should not be required to answer questions pertaining to potential cases or issues. The Senate should look at whether Roberts can be trusted to serve on the highest court in the land; whether he is honest enough and has the strength of character not to impose his own feelings and views on the cases before the court. A straight up or down vote needs to be held after he has had a fair hearing to determine his fitness for the Court.
