I'm watching the announcement on FoxNews.
Fred Barnes calls Roberts "a safe pick," and says he'll be easily confirmed.
Mort Kondrake points to Roberts' stellar credentials.
Bill Kristol says it's not a safe pick but a "bold" choice. A woman or a member of a minority group would have been safe.
Now here's Bush, striding out with Roberts. Bush speaks of Roberts' "superb credentials" and his "highest integrity."
(Roberts looks a lot like Bush, doesn't he?)
MORE: It's "stunning," says Bill Kristol after the announcemnt, that Bush picked one of the top conservatives. He says Roberts is "a little more incremental" than Scalia and Thomas and less of a "movement conservative" than Luttig.
Senator Leahy: "No one's entitled to a free pass to the Supreme Court."
Senator Schumer -- who sounds much angrier than Leahy -- talks about voting against Roberts for the Court of Appeals, supposedly because he didn't answer questions. Per Brit Hume, only three Senators voted against Robert then, the other two being Durbin and Kennedy.
