Chief Justice John Roberts? Wednesday, September 21, 2005

I think it's safe to say John Roberts will be confirmed without a problem for the job of the next chief justice of SCOTUS. A number of major Democratic senators have stated they would vote no, including minority leader Reid and Senator Kennedy but enough Democrats have said they would vote for him.

In all honesty, I think most of the Democrats are saving their furor for the next nominee. With Roberts replacing Rehnquist, it maintains the status quo, whoever replaces O'Connor will probably greatly upset the balance of the court and it will have a decisively conservative bent. The liberals are strong but John Paul Stevens is getting old. He had a couple of years on Rehnquist although Stevens appears to be in good health. My bet is we will see a fillabuster on whomever replaces O'Connor
