John Roberts

Bush moved quickly to convert Roberts from a O'Conner replacement to a Rehnquist replacement upon Rehnquist's death. I was kind of surprised he appointed a young unknown for Chief Justice. Seems kind of risky. I wonder if he intended him to be Chief all along? Considering how swiftly he bumped up his promotion, I would say that's pretty likely.

I haven't seen anything yet to make me dislike Roberts. He appears to be a good choice. He appears to be someone that will make good decisions based on the merits of the case, even if it goes against his personal values or other's expectations.

At least Bush didn't appoint Scalia as Chief. I wonder if he asked him?
