Here comes da judge...pt2
FoxNews has just announced that Pres. Bush is going to elevate the nomination of Judge Roberts to a nomination as Chief Justice. The good side of this is that it means that there will be a Chief Justice in place when the court convenes in October. It also means that apparently Justice O'Connor's backdoor in her resigniation may take effect, and she may remain on the Court until a different replacement is confirmed. I don't think that that is a good idea. Watch the left now insist that her spot be filled with a female "moderate" (read liberal) to preserve the Court's "balance". I would have preferred that Judge Roberts' nomination go forth, Justice Thomas elevated to Chief Justice, and a conservative named to replace Justice Thomas. President Bush's decision is going to make things harder for him, not easier.
