Democratic Filibuster of Roberts Unlikely
By JESSE J. HOLLAND, Associated Press Writer

WASHINGTON - The possibility of a Democratic filibuster against Supreme Court nominee John Roberts in the Republican-controlled Senate seemed to all but disappear Wednesday.

<SNIP>

Several of the seven GOP members of the so-called "Gang of 14" who brokered a deal over judicial filibusters indicated they thought a filibuster against Roberts would be unwarranted. Most have already praised Roberts, and their support would make it almost impossible for Democrats to carry out a filibuster.

<SNIP>

Democrat Joe Lieberman of Connecticut said the group had sent a message to the president to send the Senate a mainstream conservative. "And it appears at first look that Judge Roberts is that," he said.

Roberts is "in the ballpark of a non-confrontational nominee," Lieberman added.

<SNIP>

I wish *'s offer to him to be Secretary of Homeland Security was still open -- even if it meant CT would go Repuke for 2 years.

3. In right field, number 666, John... Roberts!
(da da da DA da DAAAAAA!)

With the lefty KamaAina at bat, Roberts has swung over close to the right-field line, almost into foul territory, in the classic "Bush** Shift".

That's where Federalist Roberts stands "in the ballpark".

Maybe it's Fenway and someone'll reach over the fence and pour a beer on him :-)
