Now It Could Get Real Ugly
The Chief Justice has not, as the left will claim, been a hard right idealogue in his bench career, though he has remained more conservative than many justices before him.
I think that Roberts may have just gotten a break on his confirmation, in that the press, and left wing action groups, will have to concentrate not only on his background, but also the new Chief Justice Select's confirmation, and another associate justice.
However some of the loudest ultra liberal voices, the Shumer and Kennedy group, will probably make lots of noise over all three slots being filled.
It's going to make for an interesting September.
