Then to follow your logic, length of legal practice, or in the alternative, the fact that the questioner had a legal background should preempt someone on the committee from being a "lead" questioner. Sorry I don't buy it. Foowing the same logic, your not knowing that Kennedy attended to law school would seem to disqualify your comment also. Did you even view the hearings?

While I do not know why Kennedy did not question Hill (or even the extent to which he did so), but I do know that Howell Heflin was a former Chief Justice of the Alabama Supreme Court, and Patrick Leahy is a former State Attorney, so they would have been more qualified professionally than Kennedy, who did not practice law very long (in fact I did not know he was a lawyer until now.
