is a little worrisome. Leahy to back Roberts for Chief Justice:
This just might be confirming what some Conservatives had worried all along - that Roberts will be a so-called "moderate", i.e. Souter. Not that Roberts isn't qualified - if you watched any of the confirmation hearings, it's obvious this man is brilliant. But with a majority in both houses, and two consecutive election victories, why in the world would Bush appoint someone that might alienate most of his core base?
