In Case You Were Wondering . . .

and of course I think you were since you bothered to stop by -- I would vote to confirm John Roberts as Chief Justice.

I also think that the Democratic Senators should do so in good numbers, but fear that they will not. I have not seen anything that disqualifies Roberts from serving, except that he is conservative, and merely being conservative is not enough in my book to disqualify someone from serving on the Supreme Court.

And politically, voting against Roberts in large numbers will weaken the Democrats' position should Bush decide to send up a Janice Brown or Priscilla Owens for the next open seat.
