The fact that Roberts was a partner to Sandy Berger makes me think Roberts is not truly conservative. The two would not co exist happily. It makes no sense. A conservative would be frustrated (or worse) daily with a liberal partner.
Not a "Hey, you want to go into practice together?" thing.
Not if he knew how to handle him. Berger comes off as a little intimidated by Roberts.
Not true. Even in a small firm the two can co-exist if there is mutual trust and respect. In a large firm like Hogan it is very possible to despise a fellow partner but work for the same operation. The only time their paths would absolutely have to cross would be the annual Christmas party.
I do have one small concern, however silly. I noticed Roberts wife is a member of the American Bar Association. I don't know any pro-life conservatives who are members of that organization, and I know way too many lawyers.
