Ending weeks of speculation, President George W. Bush announced his nomination of Judge John G. Roberts to the U.S. Supreme Court last night. Judge Roberts is superbly qualified and will serve the nation with dignity, honor, and great legal intelligence. He is one of the most respected and well-established attorneys in the nation, and his record of public service is stellar. Nevertheless, get ready for a heated and contentious confirmation process. Given the importance of this nomination, liberal opposition to Judge Roberts is almost inevitable. We will keep watch. Stay tuned.
