Roberts Rules

My Nixon brother Hugh Hewitt doesn't like the Supreme Court's health care ruling. But he knows the chief justice, John Roberts, with whom he shared an office in the Reagan White House, and believes that he ruled as his conscience dictated:
The Chief Justice's decision is the consequence of his personal integrity as it would have been much, much easier for him to rule the other way. Critics of him will have to consider what they would have done if they believed the mandate to have been justified by the taxing power.
