DON’T “STIFLE THE GENIUS.” Supreme Court nominee John Roberts shows some commitment to federalism values:

[Senator Ron] Wyden said that he asked Judge Roberts whether he believed states should take the lead in regulating medical practice, and that the nominee replied that “uniformity across the country would stifle the genius of the founding fathers.”

Roberts seems to have disapproved of Congress’s intervention in the Schiavo case. I have to say “seems to” because he’s speaking at a high level of abstraction — quite appropriately, as everyone is gathering material to turn against him.
