Roberts Will Redefine 'Mainstream'

Commentary by Michael Barone, one of the nation's most respected political experts.

Some conservatives were alarmed when the President recently announced he would nominate a "mainstream" candidate, as that is a favored liberal term for someone who tilts leftward. My own feeling was that the President was instead co-opting the word and using it to mean a conservative or Constitutionalist, and I believe his nomination of Roberts has borne out that optism.
