    that Roberts is feeling the pressure, to vote for the constitution by striking down DOMA.

    Wasn't that one of Scalia's complaints about the Voting Rights Act, that legislators were only voting for the VRA because of political pressure.  Who would not vote to uphold voting rights after all.

    Maybe these guys know their names will be on the minority opinion; they will be the stubborn ones seen opposing a legal and cultural landmark in our nation's history.  

    The conservatives won't be the ones writing the history this time around.  Unless Roberts joins the liberal majority so he can write the opinion himself.

    ...someday - the armies of bitterness will all be going the same way. And they'll all walk together, and there'll be a dead terror from it. --Steinbeck
