John Roberts...Again

President Bush made a wise decision today by selecting John Roberts to be his nominee for Chief Justice of the Supreme Court. While half the country would rather have one of the more liberal judges in the position, everyone can be happy that Bush didn't select Clarence Thomas, who had been rumored to be on the short list.

As far as we can see so far, Roberts would be considerably better than Scalia or Thomas.

I was really hoping for Scalia. I think he is one of the best legal minds in this country. He is clear, concise and understands that certain matters should be resolved through the political process rather than the courts. Roberts is unknown and may be a complete dope (Like Sutter) on the bench.

"as far as we can see" however, isn't too far and this Administration, true to form, is dragging its feet in turning over documents that might help us see a bit further.
