Biden not satisfied with answers from Roberts

CAPITOL HILL (AP)_Democrats on the Senate Judiciary Committee are sometimes showing frustration with the answers being given -- or not given -- by chief justice nominee John Roberts.

He's said several times that he can't answer questions because they deal with issues that could come before the Supreme Court.

At one point, Senator Joe Biden of Delaware told him, "Go ahead and continue not to answer."

He later interrupted an answer from Roberts. And when the committee chairman told him to let Roberts answer, Biden said, "His answers are misleading."

Republican chairman Arlen Specter said, "Wait a minute! They may be misleading, but they are his answers."

And Roberts responded, "With respect, they are my answers, and with respect, they are not misleading."
