Senator Cronyn Op-Ed on Elena Kagan
USA Today (Op-Ed): Sen. Cronyn: I smell a judicial activist, by John Cronyn:
Monday, the Senate Judiciary Committee begins our hearings on the nomination of Elena Kagan to replace Justice John Paul Stevens on the Supreme Court of the United States. The hearings are an opportunity for the current solicitor general to explain how she would approach the task of judging. They are also an opportunity for the American people to witness the battle between two very different judicial philosophies.
For decades, judicial activists have often tried to change the meaning of the Constitution to impose their own personal policy preferences on the American people. . . .
