Roberts entered private law practice in 1986 as an associate at the Washington, D.C.-based law firm of Hogan & Hartson, but left to serve in the first Bush administration as Principal Deputy Solicitor General from 1989 to 1993. During this time, Roberts argued 39 cases for the government before the Supreme Court, prevailing in 25 of them. He represented 18 states in United States v. Microsoft.
In 1992, George H. W. Bush nominated Roberts to the U.S. Court of Appeals for the District of Columbia Circuit, but no Senate vote was held, and Roberts' nomination expired when Bush left office after losing the 1992 presidential election. Roberts returned to Hogan & Hartson as a partner, and became the head of the firm's appellate practice, in addition to serving as an adjunct faculty member at the Georgetown University Law Center. In his capacity as head of Hogan & Hartson's appellate practice, Roberts argued a total of thirty-nine cases before the Supreme Court, including:
During the late 1990s, while working for Hogan & Hartson, Roberts served as a member of the steering committee of the Washington, D.C. chapter of the Federalist Society.
Long known as a go-to law firm in Washington, DC, Hogan & Hartson can now be found in the capitals of several other nations, as well. The firm's 1,000-plus lawyers practice from more than 20 offices, more than half of which are overseas. Outside the US, Hogan & Hartson has offices in the Asia/Pacific region, Europe, and South America. In addition, it has an alliance with business advisory firm Stonebridge International. Hogan & Hartson maintains a wide range of practice areas, mainly related to business transactions and government regulation. Specialties include litigation and intellectual property. Frank Hogan founded the firm as a solo practice in 1904.
Stonebridge International is an international advisory firm that helps businesses get a foothold in countries such as Brazil, the People's Republic of China, Russia and India. Co-founded in 2001 by Samuel "Sandy" Berger (former National Security Advisor to President Bill Clinton), the firm is headquartered in Washington, DC and has offices in Beijing and Shanghai.
As of early 2007, Stonebridge's Board of Advisor's included Roger Altman (Deputy Treasury Secretary from 1993-1995 in the Clinton Administration), former Congressional Representative Lee Hamilton and former Senator Warren Rudman.
Stonebridge is strategically aligned with Hogan & Hartson, an international law firm based in Washington, D.C., of which Berger was a former partner.
Former Citigroup Inc. Chairman and Chief Executive Charles Prince has a new job: using his world-wide business and government contacts to help drum up business for Stonebridge International LLC, a Washington-based consulting firm.
Mr. Prince, 58 years old, joined Stonebridge earlier this month as vice chairman after fielding a number of other job offers since resigning from Citigroup last November amid swelling mortgage-related losses.
"I'm going to have fun," Mr. Prince said in an interview. "It's been a long time since I've had fun."
Stonebridge CEO Anthony S. Harrington, who was U.S. ambassador to Brazil during the Clinton administration, said officials at the consulting firm regard Mr. Prince "as a sort of global business ambassador and counselor to senior management of companies and other organizations around the world."
In his four years at the top of Citigroup, Mr. Prince instilled stronger discipline and ethics among the 350,000 employees of the financial-services firm, while making several acquisitions outside the U.S. He is remembered more for Citigroup's exposure to risky assets while he was in charge, which saddled the New York company with huge write-downs during the past year.
After spending a lot of time "thinking about what happened" at Citigroup and across Wall Street, Mr. Prince said he has concluded that the credit crunch and its painful consequences were unforeseeable. He acknowledged, though, that he bears ultimate responsibility for the problems at Citigroup.

markets are crashed to pay for the bridging of divides
it is hard to determine the exact date of the completion of the bridge
so I don't think dates are chosen purely out of symbolism

As far as Reinhart, I am intrigued BECAUSE his history matches up so far, he hasnt really filled in the gaps with preposterous leaps of fiction, and he has accurately predicated several distinct events with little or no fanfare or the typical espousing that he is the bearer of the truth and we all need to listen.
I watch and learn much, and have yet to find anything that can be disproven about his inferences. They implicate something hard to fathom, but implausible at this point. I would love to talk to him personally, not from the point of view of the sycophant truther looking for a soulmate to prop up my persona, but because he bears a lot of knowledge that I would love to soak up.
that particular thread wasn't about the debate but you knew that already, didn't you.
if you bothered to see his latest prediction you will see he would have made people money if they followed his advise. hey - you not anonymous coward in disguise are you?

Good point. The Vice Presidential Debate isn't nearly as important as a Fraud who has developed quite a following of gullible half wits.
