From CNN.com :

Alito: Only obligation is 'the rule of law'
Senators vow tough questions on abortion, executive power
CNN's Bill Mears contributed to this report.

WASHINGTON (CNN) -- Supreme Court nominee Samuel Alito said his 15-year record as a federal judge has shown he respects the rule of law, as the Senate Judiciary Committee began what could be contentious confirmation hearings.

"No person in this country, no matter how high or powerful, is above the law, and no person in this country is beneath the law," Alito told the committee just before it adjourned for the day.

...The Judiciary Committee's ranking Democrat, Sen. Patrick Leahy of Vermont, said he would focus on whether Alito would be overly deferential to White House authority.

"In a time when this administration seems intent on accumulating unchecked power, Judge Alito's views on executive power are especially important," he said. "It is important to know whether he would serve with judicial independence or as a surrogate for the president who nominated him."

Other lawmakers went further.

"I am gravely concerned by Judge Alito's clear record of support for vast presidential authority unchecked by the other two branches of government," said Sen. Edward Kennedy.

"He has supported a level of overreaching presidential power that, frankly, most Americans find disturbing and even frightening," the Massachusetts Democrat said.
