More Judicial Confirmation Observations

Ok, I said I wouldn't be sucked in, but I am. I just watched ABC World News Tonight and got caught up on the John Roberts confirmation hearings. Knee jerk reactions: (1) the guy is smooth, (2) the guy is probably brilliant, (3) elected Senators are smooth and brilliant but I want to strangle all of them, and (4) I think I'm a smart guy, but I also believe I would crumble under all that national attention and pressure.
