  •  did he use the word "emanate"? (none)
    That would be a big deal indeed, as the conservatives have always made fun of the notion of privacy (or any other right) emanating from the Constitutional words.

    If he merely said - yes there is a right to privacy in the 4th, 5th, 3d amendments - that would be nice but unremarkable.  But if he said "emanate" this would be an express signal that he claims to buy into the whole Griswold/Roe theoretical framework

    •  Exactly my point (none)
      but you cut to the matter much more skillfully than me.

      Progressives believe in a strong, effective American government: balancing budgets, empowering people, & helping the least among us.
