Justice Roberts receives Confirmation

No, not that type of confirmation. The senate voted very handily to advance Justice Roberts to the Supreme Court. I do question why he was named as chief justice at the same time, given that he had no experience on the bench, the big bench that is. Any legal scholars out there know if that's happened before where a nominee suddenly moves into the chief chair during the nomination process?

Also, the media now has free rein to begin to speculate who the next nominee will be. The early runners seem to be a set of women about whom I know very little. Keep your ear to the ground, folks. This will be the interesting candidate.
