  •  So only Dems were allowed to have lawyers in FL? (none)
    Whatever you think of BvG (and I think it was a bad decision) remember that FL judges also split evenly.  SCOFLA was 4-3 and the trial judge sided with Bush.  So whatever argument Roberts made must have been pretty good if they split both the state and federal judges down the middle.
    •  John Roberts (none)
      Did not argue the case and could not recall participating in any meaningful way in the Florida recount issues when it came to his confirmation hearings.  Perhaps you have some information to the contrary you would like to share with us.
      •  I do not (none)
        My point was the fact that he helped a party in a case that you did not favor is in no way reflective of anything.  Much like I believe that people who defend criminals (even obvious criminals) are committing a highly moral act and not otherwise.
