"Why have you never chosen to work in the private or nonprofit sectors or to represent individual clients, an experience shared by the majority of the lawyers who will come before you?" -- Now that's a question I'd ask Samuel Alito, thanks Scott Turow!

I fully expect the guy to get confirmed -- I second Walter Shapiro's opinion that the Democrats' supposedly tough, probing questions "could have been dodged by a tree sloth." Ouch.
