What would you ask Roberts?

Why doesn't anyone ask about Bush v. Gore? What he would have ruled.

Or rather, did he accept the majority decision as in any way good law? Does he think it's acceptable that the justices (both Dem and Repub) threw law to the side when choosing a President was on the line? Everyone seems to have accepted that, but I don't see how this is in any way a good thing to encourage, especially for http://slate.msn.com/id/2126131/entry/0/>Mr. Humility.

And I'd like Republican Justices to have to stand up for it.

Everyone accepts Bush v. Gore was the nadir of the Supreme Court in recent decades. And yet no one seems interested in trying to prevent another, fixing the court's image with respect to political battles, or even scoring cheap points off it. I don't get why.

because it's apparently not "proper" to ask him anything about how he'd rule in any given situation or about what his views actually are on anything that might affect how he'd rule.

And since we might someday get another close Presidential election, well, TFB

Well that certainly hasn't stopped the Democratic Senators from asking those questions anyway.
