    Byrd:

    I met with Sam Alito. I spent close to two hours with him. ... I advised him of my view that the Executive branch is continually and improperly seeking to grab power, and that the separation of powers requires the judiciary to be ever-vigilant in stopping abuse of power by the President and protecting the powers of the other two branches.

    In response, Judge Alito told me that he respected the separation of powers and would not rule in support of a power-hungry President. I liked that answer, and I liked Judge Alito. He struck me as a man of his word, and I intend to vote for him.

    ...In truth, there is no way of knowing what any nominee for our nationís highest court will do after that nominee is confirmed....

    He told me so, and it doesn't matter anyway! I apparently need to make a call to Obama's office, try and put some stink into his garden full of posies.
