If Roberts can't come clean, he should stay off the court

During his confirmation hearings, John Roberts directly refused to answer over 100 questions from senators, and evaded countless others, leaving many fundamental issues unanswered. This is no position for someone who wants to assume one of the highest legal positions in the country.

Perhaps more troubling is the fact that the Bush Administration refuses to turn over any records from Roberts' time as Deputy Solicitor General, where he played an important policy-making role.

If Roberts can't come clean, he has no place on the Supreme Court. Period. We have enough shady dealings in the country. We need a justice who we can fully trust to uphold the law.
