Here Comes da Judge PT 3
Well, chief Justice Roberts was confirmed, 78-22. Those are not quite Ginsburg numbers, but Republicans have always been more accomodating than Democrats have been. Another interesting thing is that Justice Ginsburg has publically stated that Chief Justice Roberts did the right thing by refusing to answer all of the Judiciary committee's questions during his hearing. I really wish the White House had announced their candidate to fill Justice O'Connor's seat on Friday so it would soak up airtime this weekend, but it will probably come early next week. Here's hoping it's either Judge Luttig or Judge Rogers Brown.
