President Bush defied pundits on Tuesday, July 19, announcing Appellate Court Judge John Roberts as his pick to replace Justice Sandra Day O'Connor on the U.S. Supreme Court. Roberts began lobbying for confirmation the morning after the announcement, and the pace of the debate is already picking up. If he is confirmed, Roberts, now 50, could potentially sit on the bench until 2030 or longer. Any president who gets to appoint a Supreme Court justice leaves a legacy. We are witnessing the Bush legacy unfold before our eyes.
