I Hope Drudge Is Right This Time:
The Drudge Report is saying that President Bush will be nominating John Roberts to fill Justice O'Connor's seat. Roberts is my favorite among all of the people on the short list: he is brilliant, and his opinions as an appellate judge are textbook examples of outstanding judicial craft. Drudge was wrong about Rehnquist retiring, but I hope he's right about Roberts getting the nod. Stay tuned.
