Roberts (#2) Roberts (#2)

Chattering classes seem to believe that there won't be a fillibuster over Roberts' nomination to the Supreme Court. I will have to see it to believe it. My guess is that that is purely spin, so that when they find something, anything, the Democrats can say, "well, we wouldn't have fillibustered, except for this damaging information".

Interesting to me, it seems like the big thing that they will try to hit him with is his joining in an opinion that essentially confirms that the Club Gitmo detainees are subject to military, and not civilian, justice. But as I pointed out in a previous post, this conclusion was foregone, esp. in time of war. The military has exclusive jurisdiction because it is a military base located on land, possession of which is disputed by Cuba, while our claim is enforced by a regiment or so of Marines.
