Ken Starr and David Boies Agreeing on John Roberts?!

Wow. I just saw Ken Starr and David Boies (Al Gore’s election attorney and Bill Clinton’s impeachment attorney) on MSNBC pretty much agreeing that John Roberts is a good pick for the Supreme Court. That was a sight.

Boies said using the already famous quote of Roberts opposing Roe v. Wade would be a “red herring” since he was representing a client when he said it. And he expects Roberts to be overwhelmingly confirmed.

My take at this time? Roberts is an excellent pick, both judicially and politically. He has the credentials, both in his conservative Constitutional views and acclaimed legal experience. Yet, even though it looks like he’s conservative enough to please even me, there’s very little the liberals have handy to bash him (except all that scare money they raised).

An excellent pick for the Supreme Court easily confirmed? Would have have thunk it? But I think it’s going to happen, and I’m certainly not alone. Heck, even Ken Starr and David Boies agree.
