Roberts is a political animal according to close people...and didn't want Obarfa nailing him as a far right hack! I remember way back in an Elvis movie..when a guy said to Elvis(LOVING YOU) your favorite color YELLER. to which Elvis worked him over ! Well, I know----- Roberts favorite color is YELLER !

The Supreme Court's 5-4 decision upholding the Obama administration's health care legislation was a victory for the president, his administration and his party. Their most ambitious legislative achievement has not been nullified, and they are not left in obvious disarray.

But it is only a partial victory and in some ways not a victory at all, both in the short run electorally and in the long run in terms of the constitutional order.

Politically Obamacare, as its critics call it, remains highly unpopular. It's possible that the court decision will boost its support, but unlikely.

Most voters...
