Entirely expected

As I predicted a couple of months ago, John Roberts has ridden his stellar legal background and unoffensive nature to easy confirmation for a spot on the U.S. Supreme Court.

The real Washington showdown, over moderate conservative Justice Sandra Day O'Connor's replacement, still looms.
