An analysis of Katie Couric asking Palin and Biden about Roe v. Wade

Law professor Ann Althouse (pro-abortion rights) analyzes both the questioning by Couric and the responses of Biden and Palin and finds the conventional wisdom of the events to be incorrect.

Why didn’t Couric press him on his expansive view of his own power and disregard for the role of the states? Will he bring similar expansive theories of constitutional power to the executive branch?

Absolute deafening silence from Katie Couric. She gave him a free pass. The viewer is invited to sit back and admire Joe Biden as an impressive authority on constitutional law… not like that ignoramus Sarah Palin. Very few viewers will perceive what has been done here.
