WASHINGTON (AP) - A former senator who's advising Supreme Court nominee John Roberts says don't expect to hear one way or the other on how he'll vote on specific issues like abortion
Roberts was nominated yesterday. Fred Thompson tells NBC that Roberts will answer questions about his past rulings but won't speculate on how he'll vote on issues that may come before the court.
But Sen. Ted Kennedy says that's exactly what he wants to know. The Democrat says he wants to know whose side Roberts is "really on." He says the American people expect the Senate to ask about Roberts' views on civil rights, disability rights, workers' rights and reproductive rights. Roberts' confirmation hearing is expected to begin in late August or September.
