This Ambiguous Chief Justice

When President George W. Bush nominated John Roberts back in 2005, I admit, I didn't pay close attention  to his biography.  After the Harriet Miers fiasco, I made the assumption that because W was "The Nominator" I would have little respect for his choice.

We all know what happens when you assume:

I guess my mom is right.  I should have watched more TV growing up and I might have known better than to assume.

Since the SCOTUS ruling that upheld the constitutionality of Obamacare's individual mandate, I've been paying attention to Chief Justice Roberts.  From what I'm reading, he seems likes a nuanced thinker.  Certainly a judicious one.  And someone I think I'll add to my list of friends of ambiguity.
