Bush pulls a fast one

Like he often does, President Bush pulled a fast one on the pundits and is NOW expected to go against all speculation and nominate Judge John G. Roberts of the DC appeals circut to fill Sandra Day O'Connor's shoes on the Supreme Court. (see the Drudge flash here)

From what I hear, he's more conservative than the early favorite Edith Clement (here's the WaPo's comparison of Roberts to J. Michael Luttig, another conservative Supreme Court candidate), but that didn't spark controversy for him when he was confirmed for the appelate court in 2003.

We'll have to see if his luck holds.

By the way, Glenn Reynolds has collected lots of comments over at Instapundit, and Eric Lindholm has some good posts at Viking Pundit.
