Oh to be back in the halcyon days of the George W. Bush administration, circa 2005. Remember when conservatives were up in arms about the president’s pick for Supreme Court Associate Justice?

Well, those days are apparently over after Chief Justice Roberts’ #ObamacareTax ruling today.


Despite the longing, history shows that once Ms. Miers’ nomination was doomed, President Bush nominated Samuel Alito instead, not Roberts.

There is always the outside chance that President Obama would nominate her if Justice Ginsberg steps down.

Too soon?
