Bush picks Judge Roberts

President Bush has chosen federal appeals court judge John G. Roberts Jr. as his first nominee for the Supreme Court, selecting what appears to be a solid conservative whose approval by the Senate SHOULD be confirmed easily...but probably won't. I've already seen interviews with Dems that give us a glimpse into the battle ahead. The White House is hoping that "the Ginsburg rule" will be in effect...she refused to answer questions about her personal beliefs and was confirmed anyway. Groan. Don't expect the Democrats to let Roberts pull "the Ginsburg rule" on them. This is going to be interesting.

Read David Limbaugh's post on the reasons why Judge Roberts is a great pick!

The reason I like the best is that the president thumbed his nose at political correctness again in picking a white male. I wouldn't have minded a black woman (in fact, Judge Janice Brown was my pick in an earlier post) or a hispanic...as long as the person was a true-blue (or should that be "true red" these days?) conservative. He has the courage to pick the best candidate...even if that candidate is a white man.
