"Live"-Blogging John Roberts' Nomination
[Ed's note: I was away from my computer when watching the press conference. But I took notes, which are transcribed below.]
Wow, John Roberts looks distinguished. He's smiling from ear-to-ear. Not a smirk. But the smile of someone who has worked hard, and who has the pride only someone of genuine accomplishment can have.
As the camera faces him, it looks like his big eyes are welling up. Yes, they are. My God, this legal superhero looks like he's about to tear-up. This is amazing.
His speech is short, but gracious. He really seems like he's in awe of what's happening. I have never seen such humility.
If I had to describe what I'm seeing in just one word, it would be gravitas.
