    Back in 2003, when John Roberts was approved by the Senate Judiciary Committee on his way to a seat on the U.S. Court of Appeals for the District of Columbia, just three Democrats — Edward Kennedy, Charles Schumer, and Dick Durbin — voted against him. Now, two years later, with Roberts again before the committee, nominated to be chief justice of the Supreme Court, the question is not whether Kennedy, Schumer, and Durbin will vote against him again. That's a given. The question is whether any committee Democrats — the ones who once approved his nomination — can be persuaded...

    D.C. Circuit Judge Gets on Supreme Court Short List Tony Mauro John Roberts Jr., the newest judge on the U.S. Court of Appeals for the D.C. Circuit, was hanging back. During a typical oral argument last week, colleague Harry Edwards fussed and fumed at the lawyers before him, while David Sentelle tossed out avuncular one-liners in his thick Southern drawl. But Roberts, the third judge on the panel, was quiet. When he did speak finally, he was barely audible, politely asking a question or two, but never tipping his hand. To anyone watching for the first time, Roberts barely made...
