With a vote of 78 for and 22 against, John Roberts was confirmed ,by the Senate,as Chief Justice of the Supreme Court today. Roberts replaces chief justice Rehnquist who passed away earlier this month.
With support across party lines, chief justice nominee John Roberts was confirmed Thursday as President Bush’s selection to replace the late William H. Rehnquist.

Roberts is taking his place as the next leader of the Supreme Court, with a commanding majority of the Senate backing him to lead the court through turbulent social issues that will affect generations to come.

As was expected Judge Roberts was confirmed. I personally was surprised that he received as many yes votes from across the aisle as he did. The real fight will be over the replacement for Justice O’Connor.
