( CNN) Appearing before a Senate panel last week, Supreme court nominee Neil Gorsuch minimized the role of magistrates in American democracy, referring to their “modest station.” He presented a study in self-effacement, sprinkling his testimony with folksy express and sitting at a plain wooden desk rather than the customary draped table.

Gorsuch declined to explain his legal positions or offer an assessment of past Supreme Court cases. He said he chooses disagreements based only on the facts and the law.

“There’s no such thing as a Republican magistrate or a Democratic judge, ” he asserted. “We simply have judges in this country.”
