Cornyn is asking the right questions, this time about "inherent physiological differences." He is homing in on the right topic. He is trying to hold her feet to the fire. Then... ARRGGGHHH.... he fails to hit the obvious last follow-up, which is to absolutely insist on her discussing the "physiological" differences in judging. He said HE was struggling to understand her (bizarre and implausible) distinctions, but did not ask the ultimate follow-up that put HER on the spot. He let her wriggle of the hook. He's doing a pretty good job, but not a great one -- on several of the areas where she is most vulnerable. Likewise, he asked about her embrace of the "indefinite" nature of the law... but didn't, quite, adequately follow up.
