"Palin can’t name a Supreme Court case she disagrees with."

Tonight, CBS’s Katie Couric released her latest interviews with Sen. Joe Biden (D-DE) and Gov. Sarah Palin (R-AK), during which she asked both of them about Roe v. Wade and the Supreme Court. Palin could not identify any other Supreme Court case she disagreed with, but said as Vice President she “wouldn’t be in a position of changing those things” anyway:

Couric: What other Supreme Court decisions do you disagree with?

Palin: Well, let’s see. There’s, of course in the great history of America there have been rulings, that’s never going to be absolute consensus by every American. And there are those issues, again, like Roe v. Wade, where I believe are best held on a state level and addressed there. So you know, going through the history of America, there would be others but …

Couric: Can you think of any?

Palin: Well, I could think of, any again, that could be best dealt with on a more local level. Maybe I would take issue with. But, you know, as mayor, and then as governor and even as a vice president, if I’m so privileged to serve, wouldn’t be in a position of changing those things but in supporting the law of the land as it reads today.

Watch it:

Answering the same question, Biden discussed the Supreme Court case overturning the Violence Against Women Act.
