Let the games begin...
An absolutely excellent choice !!!! I wasn't sure he had the balls to do it.
Isn't he putting the cart before the horse?
My choice would have been Clarence Thomas....
After all, Judge Thomas (who in my book, deserves the title "Honorable") has been on the Supreme Court for years and it would be a signal to the feminists to f*** off.
You may have a point if you want to appease the blacks but is this really the way to do it?
My father-in-law told me yesterday that they usually dont nominate someone already serving in the Supreme Court as the new Chief Justice. Does anyone know if thats true?
It has nothing to do with Justice Thomas' race (anyway, Thomas is a conservative, and considering how Jesse Jackson and his ilk have treated Condi Rice, Janice Brown et. al, the choice of Justice Thomas would not appease blacks). Thomas is a conservative, a strict constructionist in matters Constitutional and has years of experience. He is well respected and the feminists hate him.
As you may recall, the Anita Hill episode was perpetrated by the NOW in order to get Justice Thomas' nomination derailed. To me, that would be better than a sharp stick in the eye to the NOW. The very man they didn't want on the Supreme Court being the Chief Justice.
That would send a clear signal to the feminazis --- we don't like you, we don't think you're a valid representative of the people you claim to represent (i.e. women), and you are our enemies.
I guess I wouldn't make a good politician...
I don't know, but it makes sense. These folks work with each other for a lifetime, I can see where there could be problems elevating one of them to the Top Banana position.
I would hope all would remain professional, but they're only human.
Before it's over, Katrina and the aftermath will be Roberts' fault, along with all natural disasters, global warming, and I'm sure he swiped some penny candy when he was in gradeschool.
It's been done before
Not true.... from Wikipedia.org
this means that the Chief Justice may be a sitting justice on the Supreme Court, however, he or she has to go through the nomination process again, which explains why Roberts was chosen (to avoid THREE nomination battles, two to replace Sandra Day O'Connor and Rehnquist and a third to confirm nomination of the Chief Justice.....
(That compromise by the Senate on cloture voting is coming back to haunt them isn't it?)
Separate names with a comma.
