Roberts on Assisted Suicide

Newly installed Chief Justice John Roberts on Wednesday sharply questioned a lawyer arguing for preservation of Oregon's physician-assisted suicide law, noting the federal government's tough regulation of addictive drugs.

This is hardly a surprise, and I look forward to John Roberts finally revealing his positions on key issues in the course of the coming term. Too bad he couldn't be on the record with much of anything when he was actually in the process of being confirmed.

I wonder if Harriet Miers even has firm positions on all of this stuff, as Roberts clearly did but just refused to share at the hearings.
