LAT - Roberts "Not worth fighting over"

Read the entire op-ed "Not worth fighting over - Los Angeles Times." (There's a free registration required.)

From the article:
"THE BATTLE OVER the nomination of Judge John G. Roberts Jr. to the Supreme Court has hardly begun and already it feels anticlimactic. Much to the dismay of various ideologues, Roberts is the kind of bland, affable — and competent — figure who fails to inflame target audiences.

Which is exactly why Roberts will probably take his seat on the court the first Monday in October. Confirmation hearings remain, of course, and there is still time for further revelations about his conservative views to arouse passions on either end of the political spectrum. (Choose one: he is excessively/insufficiently doctrinaire.) But the chances of another confirmation brawl are increasingly remote."

That was easy! The mind is there, I just hope this equates to a Scalia type spine.
