Adele Stan & Elliot Mincberg on John G. Roberts
As we record this show, his nomination is only one day old, yet the Washington Post has already reported Democrats "increasingly resigned to the notion that they cannot stop" the appointment of John Roberts to the US Supreme Court. Those expecting some sort of enlightening debate in the media then, look to be disappointed. But what should we know about Roberts' record? And does it really warrant what seems to be a sort of sigh of relief from some quarters that he's not as bad as he could be?

We'll be joined for that discussion by journalist Adele Stan, whose recent article, "Meet John Roberts," appears in The American Prospect's online edition, and by Eliot Mincberg, legal director for the group People for the American Way.
