Senator Lindsey Graham (R-SC) (who we usually don’t praise) had the best day of the Senators in the hearing, systematically dismantling the Democrats objections, exposing their hypocrisy, and letting Judge Gorsuch’s qualifications speak for themselves.

Graham also had one of the most important exchanges with Judge Gorsuch on the topic of Roe v. Wade.

SENATOR LINDSEY GRAHAM (R-SC): Had you ever met President Trump personally?

JUDGE NEIL GORSUCH, NOMINEE FOR SUPREME COURT JUSTICE: Not until my interview.

SEN. GRAHAM: In that interview did he ever ask you to overrule Roe v. Wade?

GORSUCH: No, Senator.

SEN. GRAHAM: What would you have done if he had asked?

GORSUCH: Senator, I would have walked out the door. It’s not what judges do. They don’t do it at that end of Pennsylvania Ave. and they shouldn’t do it at this end either, respectfully.

Judge Gorsuch explains that one’s personal views on certain issues don’t make them a good/bad judge.

I am the supreme law of the United States. Originally comprising seven articles, I delineate the national frame of government. My first three articles entrench the doctrine of the separation of powers, whereby the federal government is divided into three branches: the legislative, consisting of the bicameral Congress; the executive, consisting of the President; and the judicial, consisting of the Supreme Court and other federal courts. Articles Four, Five and Six entrench concepts of federalism, describing the rights and responsibilities of state governments and of the states in relationship to the federal government. Article Seven establishes the procedure subsequently used by the thirteen States to ratify it. I am regarded as the oldest written and codified constitution in force of the world.
