John Roberts' Nomination Might Falter

A conservative group has withdrawn their support for Roberts because he helped a gay rights issue.
"A conservative group in Virginia said Tuesday it was withdrawing its support for Supreme Court nominee John Roberts' confirmation because of his work helping overturn a Colorado referendum on gays. "
Apparently the Bushites are worried and are delaying the release of more papers from Roberts' days with the Reagan administration.
Thrown on the defensive by recent revelations about Supreme Court nominee John G. Roberts Jr.'s legal work, White House aides are delaying the release of tens of thousands of documents from the Reagan administration to give themselves time to find any new surprises before they are turned into political ammunition by Democrats.
It appears Roberts may face opposition from both sides, but it isn't clear whether the Democrats' spines are stiff enough for the challenge.
