John Roberts goes from virtual unknown to Chief Justice. Man, this is quite a power trip for this guy! I thought some of the current judges on the supreme court might be aspiring for this top job? Don’t they have some kind of seniority consideration for this post? Maybe not. This is a clear case of a total outsider walking in and taking the top job. The guy is in his fifties and is likely to hold the top job for a few decades! Wonder why no one is talking about trying to change the rules of the game especially when the country is so sharply divided.
A cake walk confirmation just got interesting….

I don’t think he becomes the Chief Justice just because he’s going in to the spot “vacated” by Rehnquist. The Chief Justice is announced after the entire court is together, right?
No, he is nominated to become the Chief Justice. If he is confirmed he is the next Chief Justice and will be so for the next few decades (as long as he is alive). Not sure if a Supreme court Justice can be fired 🙂
