Bloomberg Bails on Roberts

The Mayor of New York, in a tact only a spin doctor could love, bails on his party to play to the middle in an attempt to resurrect his fledgling re-election campaign:
Breaking with his party, Mayor Michael Bloomberg says he's against President Bush's pick for Chief Justice.

In a statement Friday, Bloomberg said he's unconvinced John Roberts accepts the Roe vs. Wade decision as settled law.
I'm not a big Roberts fan, but respect the right of the President to chose a nominee that best fits his ideology. Bloomberg knows this to, and deep down is as elated as the rest of the Right with this choice. But it would destroy what little hope is left in his campaign to speak his true mind.

Bloomberg is a political read shirt, phasers on stun.
