Instead of triggering the mother of all court battles, as many predicted, President Bush’s nomination of John Roberts to the U.S. Supreme Court has thus far resulted mostly in peace and quiet. In fact, the war room that the White House created to help push the nomination is so silent that they are holding meetings just to give them something to do, The New York Times reported. That’s good news for the country, which doesn’t need another nasty slugfest. But it’s bad news for the special interest groups on the left and right that depend on controversy to fire up their bases and raise money.
