So, John Roberts it is...

... uh, OK. Anyone want to help me out here? I see little that tells me anything of use in evaluating this choice either way. I guess that's how Bush wanted it. Less meat to throw to the opposition in confirmation hearings.

Matt Welch at Reason has a great column suggest seven questions that ought to be asked at the confirmation hearing. I extract key ones here, but go read the whole column.

- What isn't interstate commerce?

- How much reverence should be given to precedence?

- Quick—Recite the Tenth Amendment.

- You're on a lifeboat, but it can only hold 8 of the original 10 amendments without sinking, killing your whole family. Which ones go?

- What is your working definition of "public use," as spelled out in the Takings Clause of the 5th Amendment?

I expect none of these questions will be asked, three weeks will be devoted to any mention of abortion during a sophmore level philosophy class in Robert's undergraduate education, and two weeks on torture memos. Following this, lacking nay votes, dems will be forced to capitulate and Roberts will be confirmed with us being none the wiser as to anything substantial in his judicial record.
