5. So whatshername will vote for expansive presidential power
over congress, states and people for as long as a republican is president.

One of my four questions to Roberts was, "Do you agree with the opinion that there are 'inherent powers' in the executive branch? If so, can the president legally wield such power to disobey statutes and international acords, secretly or not?"

My guess is that whosits is a rock beats paper type of fascist wannabe, finding all sorts of implied and inherent unwritten power in the CinC.
