Chief Justice John Roberts

That was fast! Only 36 hours after Chief Justice Rehnquist died, President Bush named John Roberts as his nominee to replace Rehnquist.

As I wrote yesterday, I think this is a shrewd move by Bush. He will leave his fingerprints on the Supreme Court for decades and avoid a prolonged fight in the Senate.

Roberts might not be my ideal nominee, but I think he is one that is smart, thoughtful, and palatable to people of most political persuasions.
