At this moment, therefore, Obama looks like the luckiest man in history — “he was finished, but his enemies flinched at the last minute.” As for Roberts, how history looks at him will depend on what happens to Obama: If Obama loses in November, or if Obama wins in November and has an okay-or-better second term, Roberts will look good. But if Obama wins in November and spends the next four years doing great harm to the country, Roberts will look pretty bad.

…..inherited a disaster and is hounded by teahadists day and nights.
I like the part about Obama doing great harm to the country over the next 4 years. But what does that have to do with the merits of the case? Isn't a Judge just supposed to call balls and strikes? His job shouldn't be to pick the next president. The last time the Supreme Court did that, things did not turn out quite so well.
