Alito Confirmation Moves Forward

The Washington Post reports:
Samuel A. Alito Jr., an appellate judge who could shift the Supreme Court significantly to the right, appeared headed for the high court yesterday after completing three days of interrogation without a serious misstep.
The more significant shift won't be to the right, it will likely be towards consistency and predictability. Alito's judicial philosophy seems to reject O'Connor's litigation-encouraging need to put her role as a "swing vote" ahead of legal clarity.
