ALITO UPDATE: The New York Times editorial on Alito draws commentary from Ann Althouse and Keith Burgess-Jackson.

My position: I think that unlike Harriet Miers, Alito is clearly qualified. He’ll probably be a good justice, but he certainly isn’t my personal top choice. So if I’ve seemed unexcited here, it’s because I am. Not opposed, or anything. Just unexcited.

UPDATE: I don’t think that Senator Bernie Sanders will be much of a force in the confirmation hearings. If he is, it’ll be the first time something like that has happened since the Goldwater presidency . . . .

And Professor Bainbridge has much more on the NYT editorial.

ANOTHER UPDATE: Read this post from TigerHawk, too.
