John Kerry and Ted Kennedy both agree there is NO FREE PASS for Supreme Court nominee Judge John Roberts.
The predictable reactions — Republicans are nearly united in their praise — come just moments after the nomination was announced tonight by President Bush.
Roberts faces confirmation in the Senate, where Senator Kerry says there are “serious questions” about Roberts.
Kerry says he’s concerned about Roberts’ willingness to uphold civil rights and privacy rights in Roe-versus-Wade.
Kennedy didn’t refer to abortion rights as Kerry did, but said Roberts has ideological positions that must be fully disclosed to the Senate.
Away from Capitol Hill, advocacy groups on the left and the right are already waging a fierce lobbying campaign in advertisements on television, radio, newspapers and the Internet.
