I hope you're taking notes, Senator Clinton

Leahy won't vote for Roberts if he doesn't support Roe v. Wade:
Senator Patrick Leahy says he won't vote to confirm John Roberts for a seat on the U-S Supreme Court if the appeals court judge does not proclaim his support for the landmark Roe versus Wade abortion ruling.

Leahy said on Vermont Public Radio's "Switchboard" program that he wants Roberts to answer questions about previous Supreme Court decisions when the judge appears before the Senate Judiciary Committee.

Leahy says he considers the Roe case settled law and he wants Roberts to talk about whether he would give deference to Supreme Court precedents.

Leahy also says he would vote against Roberts if the senator believes the judge would pursue an "activist" judicial philosophy on the court.
