By the same token, can we continue to oppose Roberts because he's not a moderate? I never thought that was the best criticism to begin with. If Kerry had been elected, would he have been expected to nominate a conservative to replace the conservative Rehnquist?
However, questions still remain about Roberts' record on civil rights as well as his general honesty. I still think Roberts should be opposed. What are your thoughts?
PS - How pissed must Scalia be?
