Is Roberts another Souter?

There has been a lot of talk from the right on whether or not Judge Roberts will be another David Souter, meaning will he really be a left leaning judge when the president thought he was nominating a conservative. Several of our local right-wing talk show hosts comment that "no one knew anything about David Souter." That seems like a crazy position to me.

David Souter was a Supreme Court judge in New Hampshire for 13 years, had 217 written opinions, and was recommended to George H.W. Bush by his chief of staff, John Sununu.

George 41 was a moderate. And he knew exactly what he was doing.
