Ok, so maybe I'm not totally surprised that Dubya didn't pick a female for the Supreme Court seat. He seems to always go against expectations when making weighty decisions. John Roberts, Jr. appears to be a staunch conservative (again, no surprise there). In the end, it doesn't look good for liberal issues in America, but we'll see what he has to say as the confirmation process goes on.
Unfortunately, I can see the possibility of a rather horrible future - the overturning of Roe vs. Wade, among other things, and a general decline in the rights and freedoms that make America what it is. Please see the posts on Balkinization about Roberts for more information.
But then, like most liberals, I'm probably overreacting, right?
