    I Like this quote I dislike this quote“The department has a lively and strong sense of tradition and even if one was disposed to ignore that, it would be awfully hard to do that in the teeth of all these very smart civil servants who say 'No, this is not what we do, or this is the position the department has always taken,'”

    I Like this quote I dislike this quote“That Roberts is a conservative Republican willing and no doubt enthusiastic to be part of Bush I, we already knew, ...

    I Like this quote I dislike this quote“I am very reluctant to see internal stuff revealed except where there is some clear public reason for doing so, ...

    I Like this quote I dislike this quote“It entirely depends on the administration. The Justice Department, as far back as I am aware, has always had a role, and I assume will always have one, of vetting nominees assembling information, doing that sort of work. Whether the attorney general and her subordinates are actively involved in choices about judicial appointments is going to depend on who the attorney general is and what his or her relationship to the president is,”

    I Like this quote I dislike this quote“It is rather unlikely that memos signed by the deputy solicitor general will be crassly or even overtly political. What is said will be said, almost certainly, in terms of supposed 'professional' judgments about what would persuade the Supreme Court.”
