Biden Opening Statement


Are these the longest ten minutes in human history?

An endless gurgling stream of cliches. National Review gets a mention for (along with others cited in his 1985 job essay) supposedly maintaining that there is no right of privacy in the Constitution.

Invokes supposed intent of Founders on how confirmation hearings should proceed, while offering confused rejection of originalism.
