Chief Justice John Roberts

September 29, 2005

(broadcast stream) (.mp3 download Right-click,”Save Target as”,”Save”)
Guest: Robert Peters, President of Morality in Media
John Roberts has been confirmed as Chief Justice of the United States. All the Republicans voted for him. The Democrats split evenly 22-22.
My view: we could have done worse. And, if he is to be believed (and the jury’s out on this), he could be a fine Chief Justice.
But I’m still bothered by an Administration that thinks it appropriate that judges’ records should be hidden from the public and the Senate…..
Today I will announce how I would have voted if I were a United States Senator.
It was an extremely close decision.

Sorry, the comment form is closed at this time.

    Mark – I just finished listening to this – I couldn’t listen to it live through either stream and the first time I attempted to download it, I was disconnected.
    Yep you made us wait until the very last minute – was glad to hear your vote – and am interested in why you support life terms for the Justices.

    Vicky, I checked both streams and they’re working fine. Can you try again? I hesitate to say so here in the blog, because I spend the whole show discussing the reason for my decision and only give my answer in the last five minutes.
    It would kind of ruin the suspense..:-D
