I thought there would be an oath especially for members of the court, just like the President has his own oath.

Thanks. Do you also know if he is against affirmative action and pro-gun?

John Leo and Jay Sekulow wrote:

After two days of intense and wide-ranging testimony, there can be no doubt that Judge John Roberts embraces the judicial philosophy articulated by President George W.Bush in two presidential campaigns and on the occasions where the President announced Judge Roberts’s nomination to be an Associate Justice and then Chief Justice.

Leo and Sekulow noted that during Roberts' hearings, he stated:

Now, judges have to decide hard questions when they come up in the context of a particular case. That’s their obligation. But they have to decide those questions according to the rule of law — not their own social preferences, not their policy views, not their personal preferences — according to the rule of law.”

From that and other things that he said, I feel comfortable that Roberts would decide cases based on the Constitution, not on some social agenda.

And a sad day because Rehnquist or Bork isn't there to swear him in.

Is it my imagination, or is Pres. Bush almost crying?

Nah, I just think he doesn't like standing around during the ceremonial BS part. Much more comfortable in a flight suit or a cowboy hat out doing something than just standing there going through the formalities.

Late on Friday to avoid too much demogoguery by the Dems but to be ready for the Sunday talk shows?

Rumor is that the nomination will be Monday.

Condi has a big speech on Iraq tomorrow and the generals are going on the Sunday talk shows to talk about Iraq.

Don't want a nomination pick to step all over that.

gee, thanks, Howlin ... seeing the headline brought a HUGE smile to my face .. then your post drew a few tears. But this IS a great for the US Constitution, and I'm sure Rehnquist is smiling down on all of us, especially his successor. This is just further proof of the widsom of our Founders and our system of government ... peaceful transition of power at all levels and branches of government (Biden, et al. notwithstanding)

"...no shortage of hypocrisy in Washington.."

in fairness, the challenge to "UnderGod" came out of California and was supported by a Carter appointed federal judge on the 9th Circuit ... it hasn't gotten back up to "Washington" yet ... it's still California's baby.

Sorry kempster, we have two pot holes across town, he has to have priorities!

What a great day. It is wonderful to say the words Chief Justice Roberts, after he withstood grilling by the most unethical, loathsome and immoral leaders in this country, Kennedy for example.

Let us hope God continues to grant wisdom and clarity to President Bush and Chief Justice Roberts.

I'm wondering if Rhenquist didn't have some input on this.
Maybe this has already been discussed and I missed it,
but that seems reasonable.

Good evening. My wife said the exact same thing three hours ago...

OK, Mr. President, now announce Janice Rogers Brown.

Me, I'd like to see Bork. (With no worry about the 2nd amend.). Just to give "The swimmer" a coronary.

Sadly, Bork is now too old for serious consideration. The President should wisely consider people that can sit on this court for the next 20-30 years.

The damage that has been done to our country is going to take a major time investment for any real healing to take place.

Stevens is the senior justice though (came on during Ford's administration). Even if Bork had been confirmed, Roberts would still have been in by Stevens in all likelihood.

Now if Rehnquist had not died, and Roberts confirmed for O'Connor's seat, yes, he would have been sworn in by Rehnquist.
