  •  He's Either Souter... (none)
    ...or what Bush 41 hoped Souter would be.

    My money is still on the latter.

    Though if Roberts gets confirmed, we should obviously all hope that it's the former, the stakes are high enough that, from a political perspective, I don't think we can afford to take the chance.

    All that being said, as a very liberal friend of mine who's a constitutional lawyer (and who thinks Roberts is likely as bad as we fear he is) told me when this nomination was first made, Roberts is very smart and an excellent advocate.  The politics of opposing this candidate will be very tricky.
