Reaction to Nomination

The general reaction to Pres. Bush's nominating Judge John Roberts to the Supreme Court has been positive. As might be expected, the reaction among conservatives has been more so.

Everyone concedes that Roberts is a top-flight lawyer with the highest quality credentials and that he is a wonderful person. Still, in today's political climate in Washington, the liberal activist groups oppose Roberts, as they would any Republican nominee. The only grounds available are ideological differences. Given that Roberts is hardly an extreme ideologue, the liberal groups will be hard pressed to make a compelling case against him, and the public will likely support his confirmation.
