Alito's smooth responses frustrated Democrats as they sought to pin him down on past statements, speeches and legal opinions.
"I don't think we've heard anything from the nominee except statements that every nominee would make," complained Sen.

"Every nominee would say, 'Of course I will keep an open mind.' You don't expect a nominee to say, 'No, no, no, my mind's closed.'"
