Bush Chooses Appeals Judge John Roberts Jr. for Supreme Court
President Bush said tonight he will nominate U.S. Appeals Court Judge John G. Roberts Jr. to fill the Supreme Court seat being vacated by Justice Sandra Day O'Connor, a choice expected to bolster the court's conservative majority if accepted by the Senate.
Article has good info on the whole process. From what I heard on the local PBS this guy is fairly well liked and not a bad choice . . . well for a conservative. But expectations even from the lefty interviewers (!) was that he would be fair. So we'll wait and see what rabbits hop out of the hat, but hopefully this won't be long, drawn out, messy, and disgusting.
