Playing with fire

President Bush has nominated John Roberts as chief justice of the Supreme Court. Even though I was fine with Roberts’ original nomination, I question the wisdom of making a court outsider chief justice. Many previous court nominations have ended up acting very differently than the presidents who appointed them would have expected. While I think the chances of Roberts making a great justice are high, there’s also the possibility he could end up differently than expected. It’s playing with fire to appoint an unknown as the justice who runs the court.

Classes have been going fine, but keeping me busy. Hopefully I will get back into a more regular posting schedule recently.
