As I write, the third day of Judge Amy Coney Barrett’s Supreme Court confirmation hearings are underway.
Tuesday’s marathon questioning ran the gamut from Democrats pressing Judge Barrett on the Affordable Care Act (Obamacare), abortion and issues related to LGBT matters.
Through it all, the judge was poised, articulate and clearly in command. It’s obvious to even many of her detractors why she’s held in such high esteem.
Modern-day Supreme Court confirmation hearings have evolved into national platforms for senators to make extended statements as well as ask questions.
