Overall I am o.k. with this nomination although I wish that we knew more about him. Now before you go off and brand me a traitor let me explain myself here. We knew that we were going to get a conservative and It appears that Rogers is actually fairly moderate. Especially given some of the other choices that Bush could have gone with. Although his argument against Roe v. Wade has me very concerned, however, I do not think that he would actually push the button to over-turn the popular ruling.
I am just glad that Bush didn't nominate Janice Rogers Brown or Priscilla Owens. Although there might be another opportunity to go there if another justice retires. My main complaint right now is that Bush did not nominate another woman or a latina woman. I was quite disappointed with his choice in that regard.
So, again I would say overall that we should hear this guy out and see what he says and how he carries himself in the Senate hearings.
Until then I reamin cautiously optimistic.
