Bush Nominates Roberts to Replace Rehnquist

In a rare display of responsiveness, George W. Bush Nominates Roberts to Replace Chief Justice Rehnquist. Of course, this confirms prior speculation that Roberts has always been the choice to replace Rehnquist, it being merely a matter of time, and prehaps a matter of a second confirmation hearing.

Much has already been written about Roberts' background. He will likely fall into line behind Rehnquist and side with Scalia and Thomas on most issues. This does not bode well for minor political parties, whose rights have continually been ignored by conservatives on the bench.
