Senator Roberts may very well be an extremely nice person. It just seems that he is "extremely nice" to the criminal element which occupies the White House.

Lastly: Can someone dig up what Roberts' conduct was like during the Clinton Monicagate "investigation". My suspicion is that his conduct was just as hypocritical as that of Senator Hutchinson of Texas but I could be wrong. That ssexual indiscretion was only of interest to me in the sense that I thought it reflected poorly on Clinton's taste in women. Let's face it, Minica was no "looker".
