It Must Be Nice to Already Know Everything
Unless, of course, what you know revolves mainly around the one cue card they give you. The same one everytime, in fact, which simply states "Vote the Ideology that Put You Here." That being the case, why would a question be needed in the first place.
I know, maybe he's just the quiet type who just likes listen. Which would be quite OK in most other situations. Here, however, putting a question out there allows a littigant to at least indirectly challenge the general thrust, or assumptions, motivating that question. And more importantly, it gives the rest of us ordinary citizen types at least some reason to believe he might actually be weighing matters of substance behind the cases he gets to preside over. Just a thought.
