Another Supreme Court Poll
In the end, I cast my vote for Chief Justice Roberts. I was very impressed with his first term as Chief and his performance during his confirmation hearings. His questioning at oral argument is usually very direct and probing. He's not one to degenerate into giving speeches, eating into the lawyers' time. That's probably because of his previous career as a Supreme Court litigator. His opinions are well written, clear, and crisp. He avoids fluff and excess. The Chief also has a great sense of humor that occasionally shows up in opinions, at oral argument, and in speeches. He also instituted the policy of same day oral argument transcripts being posted online. That's a big plus in my book. Currently, he's my favorite Justice. Go vote for yours.
