7 Questions for John Roberts

Matt Welch of Reason wants the Senate to ask John Roberts 7 Questions:

1) What isn't interstate commerce?
2) How much reverence should be given to precedence?
3) Quick—Recite the Tenth Amendment.
4) Do you agree with United States v. Reynolds, and if so how do you square that agreement with the fact that the federal government, in successfully arguing for what was then a new right to keep secrets from the judicial branch, has been recently shown to have lied its ever-lovin' ass off?
5) You're on a lifeboat, but it can only hold 8 of the original 10 amendments without sinking, killing your whole family. Which ones go?
6) Do you think the 5th Amendment right to a grand jury has been perverted over time to become an enabler of, and not a protection from, prosecutors gone wild?
7) What is your working definition of "public use," as spelled out in the Takings Clause of the 5th Amendment?
