John Roberts, eh?

Time to blog a prediction that the president will nominate this guy, then backdate the blog post to early July.

I need to take a little time to get to know the guy, but here are two observations off the bat:
  1. Initial reactions across the board look pretty promising. On the right, people who were afraid we'd get another O'Connor (wishy-washy) or Souter (liberal in conservative's clothing) appear to be pleasantly surprised. On the left, we have the ironically-named People for the American Way saying that Roberts' appointment could lead to a "constitutional catastrophe". Excellent.
  2. President Bush confounds conventional wisdom again by choosing the candidate he thinks is best for the job, regardless of political correctness considerations. Good for him.
