  •  I'd pretty much agree (4.00)
    with your analysis.  I have very little doubt that Roberts is a qualified, albeit conservative, nominee, and there is no known reason, at this time, for blocking his ascent to SCOTUS.

    The Democrats on the judiciary need to perform thorough review and questioning but they shouldn't participate in strongly partisan games without good cause.

    While I agree that selecting Roberts seems to indicate that Bush isn't spoiling for a knock-down, drag-out type of fight that raises the spector of the nuclear option again, I also think that this pick reflects the President's true agenda -- a pro-business SCOTUS.  Given a choice of social conservatism or crony capitalism, he'll take the latter every time while spewing rhetoric on the former.
