Howard Bashman on Alito

Howard Bashman from How Appealing has an essay up on about Judge Alito. Bashman has appeared before the Third Circuit many times and has much experience with Judge Alito. Bashman ends the op-ed with this:

Alito appears poised to achieve Senate confirmation by a comfortable margin later this month, and his voting record on the Supreme Court over time likely will place him nearer to Chief Justice Roberts than to Justices Scalia and Thomas. Meanwhile, back in the 3rd Circuit, we will miss Alito, even as we celebrate his ascension to the highest court in the land. By 2010, Alito would have become the 3rd Circuit's chief judge. Instead, he will have to settle for being the first 3rd Circuit judge to serve on the U.S. Supreme Court.
