Does this worry anyone?

So there is no history of judgements from which someone can get an idea of the nominees' views on various subjects. Republicans have gotten very good at having their supreme court nominees answer questions without actually giving a definitive idea on where the nominee stands on certain issues. This has been seen with the recent apointment of John Roberts. Though I imagine since Justice O'Connor has agreed to remain on the court until the replacement is confirmed, this hearing process wont be as rushed as it was for Justice Roberts.
