Not Enough Experience

Talk Left raises the same issue I did about John Roberts: he simply is not experienced enough.

It doesn't help that Roberts indicated to Sen Durbin that he would have to recuse himself on issues that would put him in conflict with the Catholic church.

According to two people who attended the meeting, Roberts was asked by Sen. Richard Durbin (D-Ill.) what he would do if the law required a ruling that his church considers immoral. Roberts is a devout Catholic and is married to an ardent pro-life activist. The Catholic Church considers abortion to be a sin, and various church leaders have stated that government officials supporting abortion should be denied religious rites such as communion.

Renowned for his unflappable style in oral argument, Roberts appeared nonplused and, according to sources in the meeting, answered after a long pause that he would probably have to recuse himself.
