The Values of Professor Liu 

LAST WEEK, Goodwin Liu recounted his young daughter's delight when told that the family would be returning to Washington for an unusual, second confirmation hearing for her father.  

"She likes coming to these hearings," explained a jovial Mr. Liu. "I said, 'Good for you, Violet.' "  

Members of the audience and the Senate Judiciary Committee broke out in laughter, sensing that Mr. Liu did not share his daughter's enthusiasm for the confirmation deja vu. And no wonder.  

Mr. Liu, a law professor at the University of California at Berkeley, was nominated to the U.S. Court of Appeals for the 9th Circuit last year but unjustly failed to get a floor vote after squeaking by in committee on a party-line vote. President Obama, who has shown little appetite for judicial nomination battles, renominated Mr. Liu, who again went before the committee on Wednesday.
