Vision of the Judiciary

NORTH CAROLINA — Senator John McCain delivered a speech at Wait Chapel of Wake Forest University highlighting his judicial philosophy. Among his comments, Senator McCain expressed that: - As President of the United States, he would be committed to appointing accomplished men and women to the federal judiciary, in the mold of John Roberts and Samuel Alito. - The Senate must do its part to bring the President's nominees up to vote (as he has done during his tenure in Congress). - There is a stark difference between Senator Obama and Senator Clinton's philosophies and his own — in particular, Senator McCain believes that judges SHOULD NOT legislate from the bench.
