Can’t Please Everyone

It’s hard being a mainstream judicial nominee like Sam Alito. You can’t please everyone and wind up getting attacked from both the right and left. As I note below, the Left is whining about Alito's 20 year old statement that "the Constitution does not protect a right to an abortion". And now a pro-life group is complaining that, despite that statement, Alito is still very much of an unknown when it comes to whether he would vote to overturn Roe v. Wade. True, it is unknown how Alito would vote on abortion rights and many other issues. But isn’t an open mind exactly what we want from a judicial nominee??
