The Next Justice

What's not to like?
George Washington would have been happy with John Roberts. Of the documents released this week, my favorite is his response to the House Democrat who proposed that the White House and Congress hold a 'conference on power-sharing' to iron out the duties of each branch. Said then-Mr. Roberts: 'There already has, of course, been a 'Conference on Power Sharing. It took place in Philadelphia's Constitution Hall in 1787, and someone should tell [Congressman] Levitas about it and the 'report' it issued.' If this is an indication of the nominee's wit and clear-headedness, move over Scalia.
