Ed Whelan of Bench Memos on Alito's Consistency

Ed Whelan anticipates an argument from the left about Alito, that some of his opinions have been overturned by the Supreme Court.

Whelan makes the point that these situations occurred because Alito had carefully and consistently followed precedent in his rulings, while O'Connor, on review, shifted unpredictably with the wind and took the court with her.

Bench Memos has been and will continue to be "must" reading during the confirmation process.
