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.

Well, keep in mind this wasn't a two-man office but a huge Washington law firm with lots of partners.

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.

Don't large law firms have LOTS of partners? In fact, isn't that one of the things they hold out, kind of like tenure?
In other words, it wasn't "Roberts & Burglar attorneys at law."

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.
