Mr. Roberts

From the Washington Post:

President Bush has chosen John G. Roberts Jr., a federal appeals court judge, as his nominee to fill the first Supreme Court vacancy of his presidency, news services reported tonight.

Roberts, 50, a former official in the administrations of George H.W. Bush and Ronald Reagan, currently serves on the U.S. Court of Appeals for the D.C. Circuit.

Word of the nomination leaked out in advance of a nationally televised ceremony in the East Room of the White House in which Bush planned to introduce his choice to replace Justice Sandra Day O’Connor, who has announced her intention to retire.

I take it this guy is not the same guy who does the weekend news on CBS.
