Bush Nominates John Roberts for Chief Justice
Bush made the announcement at 8:00 from the Oval Office.
On the Left, it’s all about the quotas. From Armando at Daily Kos:
In short, Social Conservatives have gotten their nominee – his name is John Roberts. For replacing O’Connor, Bush must pick a Justice like O’Connor, not Scalia, Thomas or Rehnquist.
No. No. No. There is no such thing as an ideological quota per seat on the Court. Or gender. Or race.
