(John G. Roberts - Supreme Court material?)
Tonight, President Bush announced that he is nominating DC Circuit Court Judge John G. Roberts, Jr., to the Supreme Court.
In his selection, Bush has chosen someone with a very small paper trail that Democrats will scrutinize heavily, but likely won't find anything. All I know about him is this:
1-He was born in 1955 in Buffalo, New York.
2-He graduated from Harvard.
3-He clerked for Chief Justice William Rehnquist, 1985.
4-He's a rock solid conservative.
None of these things should disqualify him from Supreme Court service. I'll be honest and say I don't have any real idea about his views on Roe v. Wade, seeing as how he once argued in a legal case it should be overturned, and later said it was the law and should be left alone. He does seem like a fairly likable guy, and he does seem to have the proper temperment to be a Justice of the highest court in America. I'll reserve final judgement on whether I will support his nomination until I know some more facts about him, however.
PICTURE OF THE DAY
This pretty much speaks for itself.
BILL CLINTON 2.0
Well, Bush and John Roberts have thrown me off track for my schedule to post my Mark Warner profile. I expect to have it posted tomorrow or the day after.
