Roberts a Wise Choice by Bush

In nominating John Roberts for associate justice of the Supreme Court, President Bush has made a very smart choice. Robert's is the type of nominee that will not stir up the partisan battle many expected and he is solidly conservative. One of the most brilliant legal minds in the country, Roberts has only been in the appeal courts for two years, leaving him with a short list of decisions that could have opened him to attacks by Democrats. Clearly, Roberts will not meet the "extraordinary circumstances" clause that the "gang of fourteen" agreed upon to allow filibustering a nominee. Although some claim that Robert's philosophy is unknown because of his short history in the appelate courts, many know him as a Washington insider, something Justices Souter and O'Connor were not. Although their are questions surrounding his ideology, there is no question he is more solidly conservative and a safer choice for Republicans than the previous nominees they have named. But you never now, he may turn out to be a sour pick for the right, but I doubt it.
Roberts Likely Won't Face Filibuster
