What he hasn’t figured out is an argument to support his premise that, notwithstanding the past few election results, a conservative does not “belong on a closely divided court.”
UPDATE: Pia Catton in the New York Sun summarizes in straightforward terms part of the problem Roberts poses for the Dems.
