Roberts Confirmation

It what came as little surprise, Judge Roberts has been confirmed as Chief Justice of the Supreme Court. Even less surprising was the fact that Kennedy, Kerry, Clinton, and Boxer all voted against Roberts, which quite frankly is a great sign. Of course, these 4 would have voted against somebody like Ginsburg as long as it was President Bush doing the nominating.

Looking forward, let's hope Bush remains true to his "mandate", and selects a true conservative to fill the remaining empty seat on the court. Certainly, diversity is a noble cause, and I personally don't care about the gender nor the race of the next candidate. But can anybody deny that wisdom, understanding, right judgement, courage, and knowledge should trump diversity? And while I'm on the subject of the gifts of the Holy Spirit, reverence and an awe of God's presence wouldn't hurt either.
