re: John Roberts the New Chief Justice

In response to Steve Clemons
re: While John Kerry was off debating who was and wasn't a hero in yesteryear's wars, he should have been saying: "It's the Supreme Court, stupid."

Most voters have either forgotten what the Supreme Court is or underestimate its importance in the grand scheme of things (How many know that Miranda is a Supreme Court decision?).

The presidential election is about convincing voters that 1) the candidate is a good guy, 2) the candidate is a leader, and 3) the candidate genuinely cares about the voter. Based on that calculus, Kerry was not a bad candidate, but he wasn't necessarily the best candidate (not to rehash that subject).
I haven't set up my anon-o-email yet, and am a little lazy when it comes to that sort of thing... thus I cannot comment on certain blogs.
