Pull Up a Chair, Pop Up the Corn

David von Drehle of The Washington Post predicts that John Roberts is a "bad bet for fireworks" in his Judiciary Committee hearings.

Yes, but that's what makes him so dangerous to the Democratic leftists, poseurs and presidential wannabes who sit in a disproportionate number on the Committee, including: Biden, Feingold, Leahy, Kennedy and, of course, Durbin! One doesn't need fireworks from Roberts for the hearings to be delightfully entertaining. Watching the motley crew named above go red in the face as they rudely demand certain responses from Judge Roberts is, alone, worth the price of admission.

Even Dianne Feinstein , who enjoys a reputation for being much more moderate than her voting record would suggest, is claiming a special responsibility to obtain answers from John Roberts.

All of it promises to be very, very revealing.
