Bush Nominates Roberts For Supreme Court
My initial take is that we need to take a deep breath and see what Senate Democrats, the press – hey, they seem to have found a spine lately! – and we bloggers come up with on the guy's background and beliefs.
Though I must say that it seems odd that he has only two years experience as a judge, which seems a bit like playing a couple of years of high-school baseball and thinking you'll be starting for the Yankees tomorrow.
It sounds kind of like Bush is using the Supreme Court to reward a past contributor and partisan political operative far more than having made an honest effort to seek the most qualified judge for the appointment.
Is Roberts a consensus candidate? Let's sit a spell and see what develops.
