Liberals: pro-Litmus Test
I remember in previous judicial nomination battles, the idea of a "litmus test,"—i.e. judging a candidate based on his or her beliefs on specific issues such as Roe or the death penalty or gay rights—used to be frowned upon by both sides. Now, it seems that liberals are favoring this kind of inquiry.

Sorry folks, but as much as I'd love an anti-Roe justice, I'd prefer one that tried to read the Constitution based on original intent.
