Pity the U.S. Supreme Court nominee about to face 19 senators, each with a set of issues, some predictable, some not, and many far removed from the day-to-day work of a justice ? or for that matter, a judge or lawyer. The predictable menu of issues is already being written for Judge Sonia Sotomayor by senators and special interest groups. Perennial favorites include abortion, the scope of the right to privacy, the death penalty and when stare decisis should prevail.
