Roberts' record

Found an interesting post on Slate this morning, albeit from last week about U.S. chief justice John Roberts' leadership since assuming office. It makes the interesting point that few U.S. supreme court justices have lately served their time arguing many cases before the same court. That, the writer suggests is why he was so well prepared for the job. The piece also notes that Roberts has many to agree with his colleagues on the "conservative" wing of the court more times than his late predecessor William Rehnquist, and agree more times with the "liberal" wing. That says something for his powers of persuasion I suppose.
