Is John Roberts Another David Souter?
Ann Coulter is afraid that Bush's Supreme Court nominee, John Roberts, may end up being another Justice David Souter - a liberal in conservative clothing.
How much will we end up knowing about Judge Roberts before he is confirmed? Probably not much. And for the record, I do not believe nominees should have to answer questions about cases that may come before them, but it would certainly be nice if Judge Roberts had a larger legal history with which his judicial leanings might be measured.
That said, Judge Roberts certainly seems to have the qualifications to be a Supreme Court justice.
You can read more about Judge Roberts in the New York Times.
I hope the Democrats can make the confirmation process a civil one, but rest assured Senators Schumer, Kennedy, Boxer and Kerry will turn it into a petty, partisan pissing contest.
