Senate legal staffers burning midnight oil

"While the rest of Capitol Hill has cleared out for summer vacation and beach reading, the lawyers on the Senate Judiciary Committee are reading memos, law review articles, legal opinions and hearing transcripts to prepare their bosses." ...

"Michael O'Neill, chief counsel to Specter" and "a former clerk for Justice Clarence Thomas who is on leave as a law professor at George Mason University," said, "Roberts' nomination 'is somewhat of a disappointment.'"

"'He is such an outstanding candidate and so well qualified for this position,' he said, that the lawyers don't have as much work as they expected."
