AND HE'S NEVER PARTIED ALL NIGHT LONG WITH FAMOUS ROCK STARS . . . Today on NPR, Senate Minority Leader Harry Reid explained why he voted against John Roberts--
No one could question his legal brilliance. But the fact is, he's never taken a deposition, never voir dired a jury, never argued a case to a jury. I think that that's not what I personally am looking for in someone going to the Supreme Court.
Yes, it's true: trial lawyers rule! And wouldn't the Supreme Court be twice as effective with draft beer in the robing room? It's just the sort of lesson a lifetime of taking depositions and arguing to juries will teach you. Take it from me, a trial lawyer. Like Sen. Reid, I hope Bush gets it right the next time.
