"His demeanor suggests he well might not be an ideologue"
Posted by Gordon Smith

So many interesting things have been said during the confirmation hearings that this little quip from Charles Schumer probably should pass unremarked, but it reminds me of a discussion that I had with one of my colleagues about Judge Roberts. I have never met Judge Roberts. He seems like a very bright fellow, but I also have the impression that he has led a very calculated life, going to the right schools, taking the right jobs, making the right friends, etc. to prepare himself for high judicial office. Wouldn't it be quite astonishing if a person like that still had the demeanor of an ideologue? I think it would.
